Photograph signed: "Licinio Refice". Sepia, 3½x5½. Illegible phrase in upper left corner, possibly an inscription. Italian Catholic priest and composer Licinio Refice (1883-1954) represented the new direction of Italian church music in the 20th century, leaving the popular song "Ombra de nube" (1935). His first opera, Cecilia, created a sensation at its 1934 premier in Rome. Another opera, Margherita Da Cortona, appeared in 1938. Refice died in 1954 during morning rehearsals of Cecilia in Rio de Janeiro, with Renata Tebaldi singing the title role of Saint Cecilia. Corners rounded. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
