Versa est in luctum

Lobo’s dignified work of majestic sadness may have impressed his contemporaries Victoria and Vivanco; both wrote similar settings for six voices, both taking pains to begin with striking descending phrases paired with answering voices that rise. Some forty to fifty years later Padilla, at Puebla, Mexico, wrote his own version for five voices using similar devices.
