Verdi - Requim, Bruckner - Te Deum
Often overlooked in the line of Requiems, Verdi's contribution is a tour de force with all the aspects that made him a great opera composer being used here in full. Paired on this disc with Verdi's Requiem is the seldom performed Te Deum by Anton Bruckner, another fine work. Two CDs for the price of one!
