Victoria: Psalms and Motets

Yorkshire Baroque Soloists

The beautiful sonorities and mystical fervour of the Spanish Renaissance unite in a diverse programme of psalm and motet settings by the extraordinary composer Tomás Luis de Victoria. The composer’s choral music is characterised by a combination of skilled counterpoint and a profound, often highly mystical, interpretation of the text. This performance will include settings, specially edited for YBC from part books in the British Library, that range from the joy of his Missa Laetatus sum in 12 parts to the contemplative intensity of his 8-part Salve Regina.
