CEEH Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica

Tomás Luis de Victoria (ca. 1548-1611)
La fiesta de Pascua en Piazza Navona

The CEEH is taking part in the commemoration of the great Spanish Renaissance composer by entrusting La Grande Chapelle with the musical reconstruction of the celebrations held annually by the brotherhood of San Giacomo degli Spagnoli of Rome in the Piazza Navona during Spain’s period of greatest predominance in Italy.

Directed by Albert Recasens, a group of 27 singers and instrumentalists rediscover a hitherto unknown part of the oeuvre of Victoria and contemporary compositors through a novel approach that places his polyphonic repertory in its original historical and cultural context.

The CD is recorded by LAUDA, a label specialised in the revival and performance of old musical works as well as in staging concerts which disseminate the unknown heritage of Spanish composers.

Works by: Giovanelli, Kerle, Palestrina, Victoria, Bendinelli, Razzi, Infantas, Rodio, Clavijo del Castillo, Guerrero and Animucci.
