On 30 September 2011, a concert of sacred music
was held at the Basilica

the Moscow Synodal Choir conducted by Alexei Puzakov

Symphony Orchestra of the Academy delle opera under the
Works by Sergei Rachmaninov, Giuseppe Verdi and Frà
“De Profundis” – a cantata based on the poems by Regina
"...concerning Fr Armando, we should say that this was
a revelation. Pierucci
is a 75 year old Franciscan, who is said to be a fine
organist and has lived for
many years in Jerusalem, where he once aroused a polemical
Semitism and anti-Semitism. The fact is that his De Profundis...
is a powerfully
beautiful work for mezzo-soprano (the rough but strong
flute (an excellent soloist whose name does not appear
in the programme),
choir and orchestra. It was written 10 years ago and
strikes an admirable
balance between classical and modern styles, with a harmonious
solid as it is audacious, and enriched with profound
questions on the meaning of life and death."
