Title: Soldiers’ Chorus (Part II – “Squilli, ercheggi”), from the opera Il Trovatore

Composer: Giuseppe Verdi, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin and Viola

Printout: 4 pages

Note: The famous Soldier’s Chorus from Il Trovatore is bisected by a recitative that, while essential to the plot, is musically less interesting that the rest of the scene. In this, the second choral section, the soldiers celebrate the stirring sound of trumpets. The first section of the Soldiers’ Chorus ‘Or co’ dadi”, arranged for violin and viola, is also available.
