Verdi, Giuseppe

(9 or 10 October 1813, Roncole near Busseto, Italy – 27 January 1901, Milan)
   The greatest composer of Italian opera in the 19th century contributed Quattro Pezzi Sacri ("Four Sacred Pieces," published 1898) and the great Requiem mass to the concert choral repertory of sacred music. The Quattro Pezzi, evidently composed without commission, include an Ave Maria for four-voiced unaccompanied chorus, Laudi alla Vergine Maria ("Praises to the Virgin Mary") for women’s four-voiced unaccompanied chorus, a Stabat Mater for mixed chorus and orchestra, and a Te Deum for double chorus and orchestra.
