Verdis Requiem fuses his operatic flair with ancient liturgical texts for the Mass of Dead that have been set by countless composers over the centuries. Verdis setting stands out as one of the finest, enthralling audiences with its intensely dramatic interpretation. His iconic Dies irae Day of Wrath in particular blazes with fury and terror, replete with thunderbolts from the bass drums. It, along with the opening chorus of Carmina Burana, is among the most recognizable music in the classical genre.
