Yesterday, I sang the praises of that great Italian musician and churchman Don Lorenzo Perosi. As we enter the Promised Land flowing with milk and honey, one of the Old Testament figures of the Transitus Domini, I present you one of Perosi’s greatest works, La Risurrezione di Cristo which is sung in Latin to biblical and liturgical texts. This is rather a nice performance by the Cappella Musicale del Duomo di Modena.
It makes a difference to hear an Italian orchestra playing in tune, and for the performance not to be insipid as is often the case! The young conductor really knows what he is doing – hats off!
