Description

Tomás Luis de Victoria (c. 1548-1611)

Officium Defunctorum a6 and motets

After an illustrious career in Rome, Tomás Luis de Victoria retired to the Monasterio de las Descalzas de Santa Clara outside of Madrid in 1581, where he served as chaplain to the Dowager Empress Maria, sister of Philip II and wife of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II. Upon her death in 1603 he composed the Officium Defunctorum, sometimes called his Requiem, for her great obsequies in April of that year. We invite you to join us for this monumental work, the greatest of the Spanish Renaissance requiems, performed as it would have been in 1603 for the Dowager’s funeral with organ and bajon, as we embark on our 25th season.
