Fourteen-voice choir

Tomás Luis de Victoria and the Spanish Golden Age

To complement Stile Antico’s concert, the Choir of Corpus Christi Church forgoes the solemnity of Holy Week to perform Victoria’s Missa O magnum mysterium and works by Guerrero and Morales from other feasts of the Church Year. Spain’s Golden Age, marked by overseas conquest and the accumulation of riches, was also an age of musical flowering—with Victoria at its center.

3:15 p.m. conversation with James Bassi, conductor/composer; and Thomas Baker, singer/ historian, in the auditorium
