Ave regina caelorum & other sacred music

Westminster Cathedral continue their survey of the music of Tomás Luis de Victoria—begun in triumphant style with a Gramophone Award-winning disc of the Missa O quam gloriosum—with this new recording of the Missa Ave regina caelorum, an opulent double-choir setting based on Victoria’s two eponymous motets.

Also included are a four-voice Magnificat, two Ave Maria settings (for four and eight voices), the double-choir Ave regina caelorum, and five Vesper Psalms, all composed for double-choir as if to underline their significance in the liturgy. The performances do full justice to the ambition of Victoria’s intentions, as Martin Baker firmly cements his position as worthy successor to the glories achieved by this choir under James O’Donnell and, before him, David Hill.
