The Call of the Beloved
The great Spanish composer and priest, Tomas Luis de Victoria, devoted his life to writing supremely uplifting and intense music throughout the church calendar.
The Call of the Beloved includes some of the earliest triple-choir music ever to be published and is a reminder of Victoria's joyous and passionate music, complementing his more austere Requiem and music for Holy Week.
'this is a beautifully prepared and rewarding recording that deepens our appreciation of one of the greatest masters of the renaissance. ' Gramophone
'If one can ever achieve complete emotional expression through the power of music, then here it is.' Harry Christophers
