5.0 out of 5 stars A glorious Gloria, 18 Oct. 2010
By 
J. Elliott (Stockport UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Messa Di Gloria Vocal Score (Belwin Edition) (Paperback)
Puccini is of course famed universally for his wonderful operas, ranked by many as the finest the world has seen, with captivating music - almost everyone with any contact with classical music will be familiar with some of his great themes. He is not known as a composer of religious music, but this Messa di Gloria was written by him as the final composition when he graduated from the conservatoire. It was totally eclipsed by his operas for decades, but was "rediscovered" in the 1950s and found to have quite charming qualities, and is now being regularly performed. The music is not too demanding technically, and within the range of competent choirs. It is quite classical in form, very accessible, tuneful, harmonic, and the Gloria itself is an effervescent joy, full of life and fun. The Gloria and the Credo form by far the largest part of the work, about two-thirds of the whole.There are relatively small parts for solo tenor, baritone and bass, again not technically demanding.
This is the standard edition. The work lasts 45 minutes, and is a most rewarding experience for both singers and audience. It has to be! - it is Puccini.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just DO IT!, 17 April 2014
This review is from: Messa Di Gloria Vocal Score (Belwin Edition) (Paperback)
If you are in any reasonably competent choir, my advice is: DO THIS BEFORE YOU DIE! Well advanced in years and in choral experience, I'm happy to advise the singing world that this is the most exciting thing I've EVER had the privilege of performing. People talk of the Verdi Requiem as being "operatic" in style.... but that's only because they haven't yet encountered THIS baby. Eternal gratitude to our choral director for selecting it; and will somebody please tell me how to get the "Qui Tollis" out of my head?
