"La Dársena" (RNE) bring us a special programm focused on the Victoria's Officium Defunctorum, now recorded by Albert Recasens. In addition to different fragments of the officium (Taedet Animam Meam, Introito, Kyrie), in this program Albert Recanses talk about the requiem, and about the peculiarities of this album. Recasens also explain us the investigation he has made to recover and rebuilt this masterpice. It is an interview that values the Officium in its ceremonial but also artistic context, in which austerity and the use of expressive resources stand out (for example in the introit, in the offertory).
