Clément Janequin (c1490-1562)
Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)
Francisco Guerrero (1528-1529)
Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla (c1590-1664)
From the frightful sounds of the battlefield to impassioned pleas for God's aid, the 16th century's conflict resonates today. Compsers Janequin, Victoria, Guerrero and Padilla brilliantly depict the timeless and tragic results of the quest for victory. The tensions and vibrancy of the era are evident in Missa Pro Victoria by Victoria and Guerrero?s Missa de la batalla escoutez, both mass settings based on Jannequin?s chanson, ?La Guerre?.
