Verdi was one of the greatest of all opera composers and many of his rousing choruses are justly famous to those who have never seen an operas. The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves, the Grand March from Aida and the Anvil Chorus, all included here, are testimony to Verdi's ability to pen a memorable tune.
"The balance is forward, for chorus and orchestra alike, and the sound is beeflily full-bodied and present, with the orchestral brass fat, sonorous, and telling. The impact is undeniable." (Gramophone)
