Spanish Glories of the Sixteenth Century

This event has passed.

Tenebrae presents its BBC Music Magazine award-winning interpretation of Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Requiem Mass for six voices, written in 1603 and published in 1605.

This masterpiece is one of a handful of large-scale works which for many, represents what Renaissance polyphony is, what it sounds and feels like, and how expressive it can be. The programme also features a selection from Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories and Lamentations for Holy Saturday alongside the captivating Versa est in Luctum by his contemporary Alonso Lobo.

“This is a definitive modern Victoria Requiem, performed by a choir who relish its musical and expressive challenges.”
