The Reverend Tomás Luis de Victoria, priest from Avila, dedicates to the Saint Mother of God, Saint Mary the perpetual Virgin or to her merciful Father, or to all the saints who happily reign in heaven with Christ, to sing their praise on solemn festivities and to inspire faithful people’s devotion through hymns and sacred songs composed by him.
