Tomás Luis de Victoria – Vespers

The Exon Singers

Delphian Records DCD34025 (2004)

“brilliant soprano sound” – The Daily Telegraph

“one is just swept along by the unabashed exuberance of the singing” – International Record Review

The Spanish master of the golden age of polyphony, Tomas Luis de Victoria, left an astoundingly beautiful legacy of antiphonal sacred music devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Realised for the very first time here by The Exon Singers is a Vespers for the Annunciation, bringing together these works of Marian devotion in a glorious and revelatory celebration.
