Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)

The Roman International

Wednesday 2 July 2008 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Wednesday 2 July 2008 20:45-21:45 (Radio 3)

Focusing on Victoria's extensive collection of music for Holy Week, Donald Macleod and Jeremy Summerly explain how the composer took full advantage of the opportunities open to him in 16th-century Rome - an exciting city for any budding musician or priest. He was employed as a musician at two of the local Spanish churches and at two of the city's Jesuit colleges before being fast-tracked to the priesthood.
