Music of the Spanish Golden Age

Victoria - Officium defunctorum (1605) with 12-part motets, psalms and Magnificat

No other period of musical history seems to have managed to capture the glorious choral sonority and colour of the music of Spanish Renaissance. Tomas Luis de Victoria is the best-known composer of this school and we are certain that our audiences will welcome our continued exploration of this repoertoire. His Officium defunctorum (Requiem) is rightly his most famous piece. we also include several specially-edited large scale compositions interspersed with more intimate motets and plainchant alongside motets by other Iberian composers Guerrero and Lobo.
