Coro d'introduzione (from 'Cavalleria Rusticana') - P. Mascagni

arr. Jos van de Braak for choir and band

For Choir and concert band.

Its earthy passions, bold confrontational scenes and richly melodic score set a fashion for so-called 'verismo' opera that would endure for more than a decade. The 'Coro d'introducione' is sung at the beginning of the opera: it is on Easter morning, and music almost makes us 'see' the light that filters through the windows, and the mood of joyful simplicity of the villagers.
