To mark the occasion of Júlia Várady’s 80th birthday, Orfeo is releasing this historical recording of Verdis Messa da Requiem an opera in ecclesiastical robes, as conductor Hans von Bülow called it captured at the Stiftskirche Herzogenburg in 1980. Appearing alongside her are Alexandrina Milcheva, Alberto Cupido, Nicola Ghiuselev, the ORF Choir and the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Leif Segerstam.

This recording of Verdi’s Messa da Requiem – an “opera in ecclestiastical robes”, as conductor Hans von Bülow called it – was recorded in October 1980 at Stiftskirche Herzogenburg with Julia Varady, Alexandrina Milcheva, Alberto Cupido, Nicola Ghiuselev, ORF Choir and ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Leif Segerstam. The Messa da Requiem is a musical setting of the Catholic funeral mass (Requiem) for four soloists, double choir and orchestra by Giuseppe Verdi. It was composed in memory of Alessandro Manzoni, an Italian poet and novelist whom Verdi admired. The first performance, at the San Marco church in Milan on 22 May 1874, marked the first anniversary of Manzoni’s death. The work was at one time referred to as the “Manzoni” Requiem. Considered too operatic to be performed in a liturgical setting, it is usually given in concert form of around 90 minutes in length. Musicologist David Rosen calls it “probably the most frequently performed major choral work composed since the compilation of Mozart’s Requiem”.
