About the album
The Sacred Music journey continues with this special celebration marking the 400th anniversary of the death of Spanish composer Tomás Luis de Victoria. One of the greatest choral composers of the Renaissance, Victoria devoted his life to the church and his music is profoundly spiritual. Interwoven with Victoria's music, this documentary follows Simon Russell Beale as he takes us through the life and times of Victoria. Harry Christophers and The Sixteen perform Victoria's music in the glorious setting of the Church of San Antonio de los Alemanes in Madrid, founded in 1606 by Philip III in Victoria's lifetime.
