      Verdi: Quattro pezzi sacri: Te Deum (15:32)

      Donika Mataj, soprano; Santa Cecilia National Academy Chorus & Orchestra / Antonio Pappano

      Antonio Pappano and the Roman orchestra and chorus of which he is music director now follow their award-winning recording of Verdi’s Requiem with the four sacred settings which the composer wrote at the end of his long life. The album also contains two rarely recorded companion pieces: an earlier Ave Maria setting, and a Libera me written in memory of Rossini which became a draft for the Requiem.
