Through the intensely expressive music of Victoria, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars represent Christ on the Cross and the Virgin Mary. Victoria’s Responsories for Tenebrae are grouped in three sets, one for each day of the Crucifixion narrative; Thursday to Saturday. In this programme the responsories are interspersed with two of Victoria's votive antiphons for double choir: his peerless Ave Maria and Salve regina.
