I want to start a new schedule that will begin with “Music Monday”. I am always coming across music I like to share and it would be nice to have an organized way to present it. Not that I won’t post anything else on Monday, necessarily, but this will be first.
Today I’d like to share this marvelous polyphonic piece by Victoria (see below) who lived in Spain between 1548 to 1611. The words and translation are below the video. I know this is somewhat inappropriate for this time of year, but I don’t worry about things like that. This video is especially nice because the score is shown throughout. Another lovely piece is O Vox Omnes.
Tomás Luis de Victoria, 1572
