Great cicles: Tomás Luis de Victoria - Victoria X

Broadcasted on: 

The most important work of this programme was the 4 voice Mass pro defunctis which Tomás Luis de Victoria published in his 1583 mass book in Rome, a page which Victoria used to elaborate his better known Officium Defunctorum from 1605. We will also listen to other funerary pieces, such as a part of one out of the two Pro Defunctis masses by Cristóbal de Morales, a selection of Lachrimae by John Dowland, Ad mortem festinamus from the Llivre Vermell or Deploratio sur la morte de Johannes Ockeghem by Josquin des Pres.
