Great cicles: Tomás Luis de Victoria - Victoria VI

Broadcasted on: 

We finish the audition of the works edited by Victoria in his first book of masses from 1576 included in this programme with the Magnificat quarti toni (combined with some plain chant and verses for organ by Cabezón), the Mass Beata Virgine for 5 y 6 voices, and the psalm Super flumina Babylonis for 8 voices. We start the tour in one of the books published in 1581 by our composer, Hymni Totius Anni which includes polyphonic hymns for the festivities of the liturgic year, such as the well-known Ut queant laxis for Saint John the Baptist festivity.
