Gioachino Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle (Little Solemn Mass) is considered an idiosyncratic statement of personal faith. Written more than three decades after completing his final opera and only five years before his death in 1868, Rossini described it as “the last of my sins of old age.” Of his efforts, he inscribed in his manuscript, “Little skill, a little heart, and that is all. So be Thou blessed and admit me to Paradise.”
