Siglo de Oro - Victoria: Requiem Can't Post

Siglo de Oro, a vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of Renaissance and Baroque music, in particular to the work of composers from the Iberian peninsular, was formed in 2008. The group, led by Patrick Allies, is formed of student and recent graduates from the RAM, RAM, TCM, KCL and Oxford and Cambridge. Of a recent concert in Great Yarmouth, the Eastern Daily Press said: 'this young ensemble sang a programme of sacred Renaissance works with such feeling that the effect on the listener was spiritual as well as inspirational'.

On November 7th the group will be performing Victoria's exquisite Requiem (by candlelight) alongside music by his contemporaries Alonso Lobo and Sebastian de Vivanco at St Stephen's Church, Rosslyn Hill (Nearest Tube: Belsize Park).

The movements of the liturgy will be will be sung by the full choir of 17, whilst the motets will be sung by a smaller group, as the candles are gradually extinguished, leaving the church in near-darkness.
