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 εκείνα της Μεγάλης Τετάρτης, από τους Pro Cantione Antiqua – διεύθυνση Bruno Turner.


Tomas Luis De Victoria, the “Spanish Palestrina”, is considered as one of the greatest figures of the Renaissance polyphonic music, along with artists such as Palestrina, Josquin Des Prez and Orlando Di Lasso. Tenebrae Responsories is a series of motets for four voices, written to be performed on Holy Week. We hear three of the ones for Holy Wednesday, by Pro Cantione Antiqua – directed by Bruno Turner.

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, 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 sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
