Notes and Editorial Reviews
2011 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Tomás Luis de Victoria. This remarkable Spaniard epitomized the emotion and fervour of Renaissance Europe and could be considered the most outstanding composer of his time. This new boxed set contains four of The Sixteen's celebrated Victoria recordings for the price of three including his masterpiece, the Requiem of 1605 recorded in surround sound and released in SACD format. A beautifully packaged set, which compliments perfectly the release of The Sixteen's newest recording by the composer - Hail, Mother of the Redeemer, also features some of the composer's Lamentations for Holy week. What could make a more appropriate Easter gift? '...a wonderful opportunity to hear previously unrecorded repertoire and to gain a much fuller understanding of a single Renaissance master.' Gramophone on Devotion to our Lady. 'This is what recording should be about...excellent performances and recorded sound... beautiful and moving.' Gramophone on The Mystery of the Cross.
