Music Notes

In addition to being a prolific composer, Tomás Luís de Victoria was an organist, a singer, and a Roman Catholic priest. A native of Castile, Spain, Victoria was a choirboy at Avila Cathedral before going to Rome in 1565. He was ordained in 1574, by which time he was becoming famous for his excellent musicianship. Victoria returned to Spain in 1587, where he became chaplain to his sister, the Dowager Empress María, daughter of Charles V, who was living at the Monasterio de las Descalzas de St. Clara at Madrid. Victoria is regarded as the foremost composer of the Counter-Reformation in Spain, and while his music bears some similarities to that of his Italian contemporary,Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (composer of today’s anthem), Victoria’s works express a particular Spanish mysticism and religion. His Missa Dominicalis, which we are hearing this week, was composed in 1605, toward the end of his life, likely while he was still at the monastery in Madrid.
