The final work of Tomás Luis de Victoria and probably the greatest polyphonic work written, the Requiem, or ‘Officium Defunctorum’, is an intensely expressive masterpiece.
The mass in six parts was written in 1605 for the funeral of the daughter of Spanish Emperor Charles V and represents the pinnacle of both Victoria’s art and Spanish Renaissance polyphony. Possibly the most human of all musical settings of the Requiem Mass, the emotional gravitas of the text is communicated with profound sensitivity, rendering the masterpiece one of the most deeply moving works ever composed.
