Two masses are the most important components of this programme. From the Book of Masses in 1592, we get the Mass Vide speciosam, based on the motet with the same name for 6 voices published by Victoria on several occasions. We can listen to them performed by Westminster cathedral choir conducted by David Hill and with James O’Donnell at the organ. We move onto Madrid to start a tour through a new edition from 1600, where Victoria included The Mass Laetatus sum fro 12 voices, based on the motet with the same name.
