Tomas Luis de Victoria

Ever since I first sang some Victoria as an 18 year old, I’ve loved his music beyond reason. His spirituality felt immediate and real and powerful. He seemed to have seen all the troubles of the world, and seen past them to sublime glory – and put that vision into music. Totally and richly human, while evoking the transcendent Divine.

Very Incarnational.

Anyway, stumbled across this. Here is someone who shares my high opinion of Victoria.
