Giuseppe Verdi: Requiem Aeternam
for Horn Quintet

This quiet section near the end of the Verdi Requiem is one of the moments I most eagerly anticipate whenever I play the piece. It is such a contrast to the clamorous intensity of much of the rest of the work, and I think it is some of the most beautifully peaceful music Verdi ever wrote.

The original version is for Soprano Soloist with full SATB choir a capella. This transcription works well for either quintet, or Solo with horn choir accompaniment.
