V: Tomás Luis de Victoria
Sacred works were his métier - no surprise given the times and the fact he was an ordained priest. Given our fondness for choral works (and the fact that the two of us are fond of 'older' music) it's no shock Victoria is among our collection. The album, "Motets" is a good exemplar of his work.
Lamentations of Jeremiah" among my collection. Usually anything with the word "Lamentations" in the title is a sure fit. That's just the way of things.
So, excuse me, I need to go buy a new CD.
