Notes and Editorial Reviews

Here Conductor Paul McCreesh and the Gabriel Consort offer an informed, up-to-date, scholarly arrangement of Victoria's famous Requiem Mass or Officium Defunctorum (Office of the Dead) as it may have been heard when it was originally performed during the funeral of the Dowager Empress Maria for whom it was written. As was customary during this period, McCreesh enriches Victoria's model by supplementing it with works from other composers, as well as heightens the intensity of the drama by frequently contrasting polyphony with the chant sequences. This inspired and expertly crafted performance will surely be of interest to all Renaissance vocal enthusiasts.

 Tomas Luis de Victoria Mass April 12, 2012 By Tom  Korbuszewski (Eagle River, AK) See All My Reviews "Wonderfully performed by the Gabrieli Consort. Most parts begin with opening chants by the choir or by the priest. Victoria writes in a most fluid and expressive style. The accompanying liner notes provide the needed translations." Report Abuse
