    The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Verdi's Nabucco is almost a National Anthem in Italy. At his funeral in 1901 thousands thronged the streets of Milan to watch Verdi's cortege go by. From no where one loan voice started singing this piece which, when first heard in 1841, was a key symbol of the Risorgimento (movement for Italy to become a unified country). It rose to a groundswell worthy of an Olympic Stadium as all joined the swell of voices!
