Resources for Verdi Requiem
Here is a link to a Gramophone article reviewing some Verdi recordings, in case anyone wants to be having a listen over the summer. It is an older article but that means it is free to access. If you have a subscription you may find there are more recent reviews including newer recordings, or will find other reviews online. It will be really helpful if you are not familiar with it to spend some happy hours listening and getting to know it before September.
Also, if anyone wants to buy their own score, it is the Ricordi edition we will be using. If you do buy your own can you please let the librarians know straight away. You can do that via this email, putting “FAO Librarians” in the subject line. This will help as they then won’t order and pay for more than we need.
