An Italian Romantic composer, mainly of opera, he was one of the most influential composers of the 19th century.   La Forza del Destino or the Force of Destiny,  is based on a Spanish drama Don Alvaro o la fuerza del sino by Angel de Saavedra, Duke of Rivas.  It is in four acts, with a scene adapted from Friedrich Schiller's Wallensteins Lager.  Lenora sings this aria in Act 4, scene 2, praying that she may find peace in death (Peace, O mighty Father, give me peace!).
