VICTORIA, TOMAS LUIS DE: LAMENTATIO (Ensemble Del Giglio)
Amicus meus, Iudas mercator pessimus, Unus ex discipulis meis, Eram quasi agnus innocens, Tamquam ad latronem, Tenebræ factæ sunt, Iesum tradidit impius, Caligaverunt oculi mei, O vos omnes, Ecce quomodo moritur iustus, Astiterunt reges terræ, Æstimatus sum, Sepulto Domino, Ecce nunc benedicite Dominum, Psalm 133

He was not only the greatest Spanish Renaissance composer but also one of the greatest composers of church music of his day in Europe, who has been admired above all for the intensity of some of his motets and of his Offices for the Dead and for Holy Week.
