The long-established tradition of devotion to the Virgin Mary resulted in some superb settings from Spanish composers. Tomás Luis de Victoria was, quite possibly, the most outstanding composer of the Renaissance and this recording features a tantalizing selection of the sumptuous music he wrote in honour of the Virgin Mary, including some of his exquisite Marian motets and the glorious Missa Alma Redemptoris Mater.
"Some much-fêted rock bands would be thrilled to pull crowds of a size that Harry Christophers and his choir, The Sixteen, are attracting on their "Choral Pilgrimage" through Britain... to hear this majestic Renaissance polyphony sung with such understanding, grace and skill is, for me, a tiny soundbite of heaven." Richard Morrison in The Times on The Sixteen's Victoria Requiem 1605.
