Tenebrae, the British chamber choir specializing in Renaissance polyphony, presents the magnificent Requiem Mass by Tomás Luis de Victoria. The program opens with two works by Joan Cererols: the Salve Regina and the Battle Mass. Born in Martorell, this year (September to September 2018-2019) marks the 400th anniversary of Cererols’s birth.

Recorded live in concert August 8, 2018 in the Church of Sant Genís in the small Catalan town of Torroella de Montgrí on Spain’s Costa Brava, the program was dedicated to the memory of economist and pedagogue Ernest Lluch.

Thanks to Classical WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we’re able to offer tonight’s program as a stream from March 7 through April 6.
