Marco Enrico Bossi (1861-1925)
Complete Organ Works Vol. II
The second volume of Omnia, organ music by Marco Enrico Bossi (see Vol. I, Opere varie, TC.862711), contains his transcriptions of two works for soloists, choir and orchestra by Lorenzo Perosi [1872 - 1956]: La Passione di Cristo secondo S. Marco and La trasfigurazione di N. S. Gesù Cristo. La Passione (Trilogia sacra per canto e orchestra) originated from the cantata In Coena Domini (cantata alla bachiana), written and performed for the Eucharist Congress in Venice on 17 July 1897. In September that year, Perosi composed two more great frescoes inspired by the Passione to complete the Trilogia, which was performed on 2 December in S. Maria delle Grazie in Milano, during the National Sacred Music Congress.
