Verdi, writing at the end of his life, had lived through the war of 1859, which resulted in the unification of Italy. His settings of the Latin liturgy for his Four Sacred Pieces refer to the immutable in a world that has forsaken the status quo for chaos and mutation. Aaron Copland's In the Beginning and Leonard Bernstein's The Chichester Psalms also borrow from sacred works of the Christian and Jewish traditions.
