Here is life. Tomas Luis de Victoria, surrounded by young noblewomen disappointed by love or looking for love in Christ, in the Convent of the Barefoot Royals, channels all that Spanish/Moorish mysticism into polychoral groups sprinkled through the cathedral, and knocks those reform-minded Protestants flat on their backs...for awhile at least. His music is like the Tower of Babylon or the Two Towers scratching at the bottom of the sky, crying for the pain of Earth and longing for ecstasy: flowering, soaring, heart-breakingly vulnerable.

Format: Audio CD
This exceptional CD of Victoria Masses is sung by an extremely impressive choir from an Anglo-Catholic parish in Philadelphia, but it does NOT sound like some of the blanched sounding Anglican choirs from England. The singers avoid that very "white" sound, and thus are remarkably true to pitch, with the faintest necessary vibrato. The performances thus, from the sound of the choir, are ravishing. What distinguishes it further is the truly exceptional conducting. These works are given a sweep and forward momentum, which helps the, works greatly, and which is missing, to my ears, from some otherwise fine Victoria CDs, for instance those of the Westminster Cathedral Choir, beautiful though they are. The readings here are very full-blooded and even passionate, but will still please anyone wanting a respite from the wearying world with sublime music of eternity. Another compliment might be that even in listening to the CD for about 4 hours straight again and again, there were still discoveries to be made, and nothing ever tired the ear. Though that is hardly a wise measurement, it still says something remarkable.
