Tomás Luis de Victoria’s requiem mass for six vioces, written in 1603 and published in  1605, is a masterpiece. It is one of a handful of large-scale works which enjoys mainstream appeal in the 21st century. For many, it represents what Renaissance polyphony is, what it sounds and feels like, and how expressive it can be. The disc also features two well-known works by Victoria’s contemporary Alonso Lobo.

The performance comes from the renowned professional chamber choir Tenebrae, led by Nigel Short, following their recent BBC Music Magazine nominated recording of Francis Poulenc’s Figure Humaine.

"Figure Humaine makes extreme demands on ensemble and intonation, as plenty of commercial recordings can prove. Nigel Short’s Tenebrae is astonishing ... a showcase for Poulenc’s choral writing, I’m finding it hard to imagine this recital being bettered." - BBC Music Magazine

"...this is a living, breathing, and perhaps even passionate interpretation. The balance of the voices and the clarity of the polyphony is near-perfect ..."

Brewer - American Record Guide - November/December 2011


"...This disc is the highlight of the Victoria anniversary."

J F Weber - Fanfare - November/December 2011


"...This is a definitive modern Victoria Requiem ..." *****

Performance *****      Recording *****

"...This recording does justice both to the genius of Victoria and to the musicality of Tenebrae."

Anthony Pryer - BBC Music Magazine - June 2011


"Victoria’s Requiem Mass in one of the acknowledged masterpieces fo Renaissance choral polyphony and Tenebrae here exquisitely conveys the flowing relationships between its six voices. The group presents the work elegant sublety, allowing the full details of tonal colouration to shine through unemcumbered..."    *****
