The Research Center Tomás Luis de Victoria always tries to be a base for materials and posibilities about the abulense composer´s world and music. But, without a doubt, the most important task it´s the performance of his music. It´s trought the choirs that the circle it´s complete, and this digital site´s work became sensible in voice and music, and for that, we would like to start a new kind of relation with those ensambles wich from one or another perspective, are related to our most importante composer´s music.
From the Research Center Tomás Luis de Victoria, we would like to dedicate with great affection this eight edition of the festival Abvlensis in memory of Ricardo Allende.

This year subtittle is Plus Ultra, with it, some relations are proposed between the explorer´s eagerness on the colonialist expeditions on XVI century, wich open the perspective and the possibilities of the known word, boosting some of our modern sciences as antropology; and, on the other side, the Victoria´s Research Center investigation spirit trying to track down the infleucne of our abulense.
