Spanish composers of the sixteenth century followed a long tradition of writing music in honor of the Virgin Mary. The composer Tomás Luis de Victoria, a priest and a scholar too, wrote multiple settings of devotion to Mary of which this collection showcases some real gems. The album sees the ORA Singers continue their series of great Renaissance masterworks being reflected by some of the finest choral composers of our present day, all of whom respond in their own unique way to these extraordinary Marian texts.
