The Triumph of Victoria

2:20
   


In celebration of Queen Victoria’s 80th birthday in 1899, thirteen of the leading composers and poets of the day collaborated on a collection of partsongs to rival their Elizabethan model, The Triumphs of Oriana. Published in a limited edition of only 100 copies, this superb sequence, studded with musical gems, provides a fascinating snapshot of the British musical renaissance on the eve of the twentieth century.

            Recording of the Month
‘I have been waiting for this collection for many years... Toccata has done the British music enthusiast proud. [...] This is a beautifully produced CD. It feels good, looks great and sounds superb. The quality of the singing is both near-perfect and enthusiastic. ... the high-water mark of Victorian choral writing’

John France

MusicWeb - June 2009

‘...magnificently sung… and recorded with luminous sheen and brilliance’

Piers Burton-Page


International Record Review - July/August 2009

‘...Recommended for its historical interest as well as the fine singing.’
