-New York Times
Stile Antico's new recording features one of the greatest masterpieces of the Renaissance, Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories.The office of Tenebrae, from the liturgy of Holy Week, has always fascinated the public and, above all, offered a fertile terrain for composers to exercise their gifts. Such was the case with Victoria, whose exclusively sacred output was nourished by multiple influences during his years in Rome. The group's twelfth project for harmonia mundi, it was released world-wide March 9 (digital) and will be out April 13 on CD. Stile Antico will perform Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories in Savannah, Cambridge and New York.
