Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)
A Swan Song for an Empress
Friday 4 July 2008 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)
Repeated: Friday 4 July 2008 20:45-21:45 (Radio 3)
Donald Macleod and Jeremy Summerly focus on Victoria's final work - a Requiem dedicated to the memory of the Dowager Empress Maria at the Convento de las Descalzas Reales in Madrid. Victoria spent his final 24 years there - first in the Empress's services and, after her death in 1603, as convent organist.
