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.
