Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Almost all Victoria’s surviving works were printed in his lifetime; many of his motets were reprinted as many as six times. Of the few works that survive only in manuscript some were wrongly attributed to him by Pedrell at the beginning of the twentieth century. The four-part Ave Maria, perhaps rightly, continues to be accepted as Victoria’s, though it has to be noted that Pedrell first printed it in 1913 and its source remains obscure.
