Notes and Editorial Reviews

Victoria was a priest-composer who fulfilled both vocations by writing devotional music of astonishing beauty. This essential collection of his music includes works written for Christmas and Easter, ranging between the joyful and the poignant. Victoria Voices & Viols is an ensemble that draws on the Renaissance practice of including instruments in choral polyphony. The performances on this disc are based on an imagined late Renaissance concert of motets in a non or semi-liturgical context. This is a fresh approach to this famous repertoire, and one that emphasizes the fluid lines and intricate textures of this beautiful music.
