Broadcasted on: 

We will listen to several compositions published by Victoria in Rome. The 2 most important pieces were the masses O magnum mysterium and Ascendens Christus in altum , published in 1592 and written after the motets, with the same name from 1572, which we will also listen. We can listen to several motets from a book published in 1585: Lauda sion, Iste sanctus pro lege, Estote fortes in bello and Gaudent in coelis animae sanctorum. As musical interludes, we will listen to organ pieces by Soto de Langa, Victoria’s mate in Saint Philip Neri church in Rome.
