It received its premiere on the first anniversary of Manzoni’s death at the San Marco Church in Milan, conducted by Verdi himself. The powerful “Libera me” movement which draws the work to a close was originally composed by Verdi as part of an unsuccessful project he led to write "Massa Per of Rossini" with 12 other composers, in memory of Rossini shortly after his passing.
