Let me bleed - Requiem for Carlo Ciuliani (2001) is an unaccompanied choral requiem for a student, Carlo Giuliani, shot by police at a peaceful demonstration in Genoa in 2001. It's a wonderfully sustained meditation on a poem by Attilio Bertolucci (1911-2000), an Italian poet, with anguished vocal lines that have the wracked intensity of a Gesualdo madrigal.
