This edition of Messa da Requiem is based on Verdiâs autograph score and other original sources. The appendices include two pieces from the compositional history of the Requiem: an early version of theÂ Libera me, composed in 1869 as part of a collaborative work planned as a memorial to Rossini; and theÂ Liber scriptus, which in the original score of the Manzoni memorialÂ RequiemÂ was composed as a fugue for chorus.Â The introduction to the score traces the complex compositional and performance histories of the Requiem and discusses the workâs problems of instrumentation and notation, while the critical commentary gives a full description of the sources and an account of all editorial decisions.
