About this album

Son of Giuseppe Perosi, kappelmeister of Tortona and protagonist of the Italian sacred music reform, he was born in Tortona on December 21th 1872 and died in Rome on December 12th 1956. Started by the father to musical studies at Santa Cecilia Conservatoire and, later, at “Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatoire with M. Saladino, in 1890 he became organ player and singing teacher in Montecassino Abbey. In 1892 he studied again in Milan, where he got the diploma. He perfected himself in Regensburg with F.X. Haberl and M. Haller in 1893. Towards the end of that year, he became singing teacher in the Imola Seminary, directing the Cappella del Duomo, then that of San Marco in Venice. As a priest, he was known as a director of his own compositions and in 1898 he became director of Cappella Sistina and since 1903 with the title of perpetual master: this task was interrupted between 1915 and 1923 because of health problems. On October 22nd 1930 he was nominated Accademico d’Italia.
