Ο Tomas Luis De Victoria, ο “Ισπανός Palestrina”, θεωρείται ένας από τους σημαντικότερους εκπρόσωπος της Αναγεννησιακής πολυφωνίας, μαζί με μουσικούς όπως οι Palestrina, Josquin Des Prez και Orlando Di Lasso. Tenebrae Responsories είναι μια σειρά τετράφωνων μοτέτων, γραμμένων για να εκτελούνται την Μεγάλη Εβδομάδα. Ακούμε τρία από εκείνα της Μεγάλης Παρασκευής, από τους Pro Cantione Antiqua – διεύθυνση Bruno Turner

Tenebrae Responsories is a series of motets for four voices, written to be performed on Holy Week. We hear three of the ones for Good Friday, by Pro Cantione Antiqua – directed by Bruno Turner

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
