Reviews

'Glorious. A rich, luminous acoustic halo seems to surround the music as it soars ever upward. Under David Hill's expert direction this choir has achieved a depth and body of tone totally appropriate to this full-blooded Iberian music' (The Good CD Guide)

'This goes to the head of the list of some fine versions of this requiem' (Fanfare, USA)
To accompany his six-voice Requiem for the Empress Maria, Victoria composed a matching funeral motet. Its solemn words come from the biblical book of Job.

from notes by John Milsom 2013
