Subject: Oh mia patria sì bella e perduta

When I heard the words,

"Oh mia patria sì bella e perduta!"

combined with Verdi's transfiguring music at Saturday's "Nabucco" their
current relevance and power in light of the chilling events of November 8
hit me with an unexpected impact beyond the usual thrill this chorus
produces. It powerfully breached almost 2 centuries to inspire what will
hopefully provoke a Risorgimento in 2018 & 2020.
