Gigli sings Sacred Songs
Works by: Bach/Gounod, Cecconi, Bizet, Liviabella, Stradella, Raffa, Schubert, Gibilaro, Brahms, Kahn, Verdi, Carnevali, Händel, Franck
Beniamino Gigli, tenor
In the course of his long career Beniamino Gigli, who was a very religious person, recorded many sacred songs, some from the traditional repertoire (Bach, Gounod, Franck, Bizet, Schubert, Brahms...) others by contemporary composers (Liviabella, Raffa, Carnevali...). The present CD features for the first time virtually all the recordings of this genre made by the tenor from Recanati, from the famous Pietà Signor by Stradella, recorded in 1932, to a sublime and moving Ave Maria by Liviabella, recorded in 1954. A must for Gigli fans.
