維多利亞：亡者日課 Tomas Luis de Victoria: Officium Defunctorum (CD)【LINN】
‘The performances are guaranteed to refresh even the most jaded palate.' ~Early Music Today
‘The Magnificat ensemble is stunning...their mixed voices blend as if a single instrument. This particularly suits the stately pace of Victoria's Mass for the Dead, chords melting seamlessly into the next.' ~BBC Music Magazine
‘The sound these singers make is exquisite.' ~The Sunday Times
‘The singers of Magnificat have a rich, creamy sound, well blended but with each voice part's individuality also fully audible.' ~International Record Review
‘...a lovely balance, with a very true-sounding tonal palette.' ~Gramophone
Magnificat was formed in 1991 by its conductor, Philip Cave, to explore the rich diversity of choral music from the last five centuries. The ensemble specialises in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries. Magnificat ranges in size from four to forty voices and performs a wide range of music, both a cappella and with ensembles of period instruments.
In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many recording projects of music from 'The Golden Age'. The first of these comprises motets by Gesualdo, Guerrero, Josquin, Rebelo and Victoria together with Allegri's Miserere and Palestrina's Stabat mater. A highly acclaimed recording of Victoria's Officium Defunctorum of 1605, named a 1997 Critics' Choice by Gramophone Magazine and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its ‘100 Essential Classical CDs', was followed by a disc of music by the neglected Spanish master, Philippe Rogier, including the Missa Ego sum qui sum.
Magnificat delivers a hypnotically gripping performance of Victoria's Requiem Mass, a work that remains an inspiration to listeners over 400 years since its composition.
Originally released in 1996, Victoria: Officium Defunctorum has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue.
