5.0 out of 5 stars Best available version (MHO), 12 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victoria: Requiem (Missa Pro Defunctis) (Audio CD)
In my opinion this is the best version of the Victoria Requiem available from among the performances I have heard. The choir is stunning, the acoustics are splendid, and the overall feeling is sumptuous. The matins and associated motets are included outside of the body of the mass. Comparing this version with the McCreesh version, the McCreesh complicates the picture of the mass while trying to reconstruct it as it might have been performed, by including a wealth of plainchant and Gospel readings interspersed within the body of the mass. If you are not completely versant with the mass this will confuse things, even though McCreesh's attempt was to place the mass in its renaissance performance context. The Tallis Scholars' version is very understated with one to a part and small choral forces. Overall this is the best version.Victoria: Requiem (Officium Defunctorum, 1605)Victoria & Lobo - Choral music
