Naxos has re-issued a very good 1939 recording of the Verdi Requiem, with the Chorus and Orchestra of the Rome Opera conducted by Tullio Serafin.  The soloists are Maria Caniglia (who sings a very moving "Libera me"), Ebe Stignani, Beniamino Gigli, and Ezio Pinza.  The recording is shorter than most.  It was originally made for release on 78's, and Serafin omitted some of the repeats.  Available from as a "special order."
