6 Noiray, Michel and Parker’s, Roger examination of the autograph score suggests that Verdi made revisions to emphasise the contrast of the two sections: ‘La composition d’Attila: étude de quelques variantes’, Revue de musicologie 62 (1976), 104123 CrossRefGoogle Scholar.

E quando in teatro si udirono risonare frasi come … l’ammonimento di Odabella (‘Ma noi, noi donne italiche’) … frenetiche e incontenibili grida di passione eruppero da tutti i petti, in un delirio di commozione irrefrenabile; e forse nessuno allora si soffermò a considerare se le parole avevano un adeguato rilievo nell’espressione musicale’; Lu-ci, , ‘Sulle onde della radio: La forza del destino e Attila’, Il popolo nuovo (18 September 1951)Google Scholar.
