The Requiem Mass of Tomás Luis de Victoria

Saturday, April 12, 2014
8:00 p.m.
St. Paul's Memorial Church
1700 University Avenue
Charlottesville, Virginia

Toward the end of his life, Victoria served for sixteen years as a personal chaplain and musician to the Dowager Empress Maria. Sister of Philip II and widow of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II, the Empress lived in retirement in a royal convent in Madrid. For her funeral in 1603, Victoria composed a requiem mass, the Officium Defunctorum, which was published two years later. On the title page he calls it "the song of the swan," referring to the Empress, but it also can be thought of as Victoria's swan song, for he published no more.

Tickets are $20.00 for general admission and $15.00 for students and seniors. They will be available at the door and at New Dominion Bookshop on Charlottesville's downtown mall and Greenberry's Coffee Co. in the Barracks Road shopping center.

For more information, please call (434) 227-4685.

Officium Defunctorum (1603)
    Taedet animam meam
    Sanctus & Benedictus
    Agnus Dei
    Versa est in luctum
    Libera me
Domine, non sum dignus
Salve Regina a 5
Trahe me post te
