Music for Philip of Spain


Phillip II of Spain died at first light on Sunday 13th September, 1598. Released in his 400th anniversary year this disc commemorates the death of this most catholic king with music associated with him during his lifetime, and with the sumptuous six part Requiem mass of Jean Richafort that may well have been used at his obsequiries

The programme begins with a motet written by Gombert for the birth of Philip; other motets include one of Infantas’ finest works Domine Ostende, and within the context of the mass is included the celebrated Versa est in luctum by Lobo.
