Verdi's Requiem

The choir I sing in (Pro Musica) will be performing on January 22nd in Bremen, Germany. Together with two local choirs we will perform Verdi's Requiem, which is absolutely fabulous. See for yourself:

(Also try Solti's version for better sound quality, but no video.)
It's going to be a busy month preparing for the concert. Verdi's melodies are not complicated, but he's crazy with dynamics: I think it's the first time I've seen a quintuple pianissimo (ppppp) or a quadruple fortissimo (ffff) in sheet music.
