Quattro pezzi sacri

The anticlerical Giuseppe Verdi wrote very little religious music, but he was pragmatic enough to balance his artistic and commercial needs. As a thoroughbred opera composer, he could also trusted to inject plenty of drama into religious repertoire, and no less so in his lovely _Quattro Pezzi Sacri_, written between 1889 and 1897.
