L'hymne du Pape, S530
L’Hymne du Pape appeared in versions for piano and organ, and was later transformed into the mighty ‘Tu es Petrus’ movement of the oratorio Christus. A version with voices and organ entitled ‘Dall’ alma Roma’, written, like the present version, in honour of Pope Pius IX, remains in rather chaotic manuscript. A pity, because it would surely have been taken up as a national hymn in Italy, whose present national anthem is among the least musically distinguished in the world!

from notes by Leslie Howard 1990
