This year marks the 400th anniversary of Tomás Luis de Victoria‘s death.

As in many composer years, we can expect vocal ensembles to explore the numerous brilliant works by Victoria, a Spanish composer and organist widely considered to be one of the finest from the Late Renaissance, on par with Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

The renowned Tallis Scholars kick-off the anniversary with a performance of “First Lamentation for Maundy Thursday,” directed by Peter Phillips.
