Notes and Editorial Reviews

The city of Valencia’s Corpus Christi Royal College, known locally as ‘del Patriarca’, was established in the early 17th century by Juan de Ribera, Archbishop of Valencia and patriarch of Antioch. From the start, its founder had intended this church and seminary to become a great centre for sacred music, so he also created the ‘del Patriarca’ chapel within it, an institution that would become home to over three centuries of music making, overseen by a succession of Kapellmeisters serving as its resident composers and music directors. This programme is dedicated to this musical legacy and to the Kapellmeisters from the first century of the chapel’s existence, composers living and working in the height of the baroque era on the Iberian Read more Peninsula. Following the structure of the Office of Compline during the Octave of the Feast of Corpus Christi, the vocal and instrumental group Victoriae Musicae explores compositions by these 17th-century Kapellmeisters, all of the music researched and transcribed by them from unpublished archival manuscripts. Victoriae Musicae was founded in Valencia in 1992 and presents historically informed performances of Spanish repertoire from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries under chief music director Josep R. Gil-Tàrrega. Since 1999 the group has focused on recovering the music of Valencian composers of the baroque. Read less
