Magnificat delivers a hypnotically gripping performance of Victoria's Requiem Mass, a work that remains an inspiration to listeners over 400 years since its composition.

Originally released in 1996, Victoria: Officium Defunctorum has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue.

‘The performances are guaranteed to refresh even the most jaded palate.' Early Music Today 

‘The Magnificat ensemble is stunning...their mixed voices blend as if a single instrument. This particularly suits the stately pace of Victoria's Mass for the Dead, chords melting seamlessly into the next.' BBC Music Magazine

‘The sound these singers make is exquisite.' The Sunday Times 

‘The singers of Magnificat have a rich, creamy sound, well blended but with each voice part's individuality also fully audible.' International Record Review

‘...a lovely balance, with a very true-sounding tonal palette.' Gramophone


 Composed for the funeral of his employer, Victoria weaves a tender, glowing musical tribute to the Dowager Empress Maria around the ancient plainsong melodies of the Requiem Mass. This recording of Victoria's Officium Defunctorum was named ‘Critics' Choice' by Gramophone and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its ‘100 Essential Classical CDs'.

'The Victoria is music to die for - beautiful sound, intoned in unearthly brilliance and absolutely crystal clear singing - you get a uniform sound of almost hypnotic meditative attraction when the choir would be a single, perfect instrument.'
