Glory be to God Print E-mail
Wednesday, 03 September 2008
"Dear God, well, here it is, finished at last, my Little Solemn Mass. Have I really written sacred music, or is it just more of my usual damn stuff? I was born for opera buffa, as You well know. Not much skill there, just a bit of feeling, that's the long and the short of it. So, Glory be to God, and please grant me Paradise."

Gioacchino Rossini, Passy, 1863
