Victoria's Tenebrae Responsories

Again, I report on music to listen to but will not likely ever hear live, much less in liturgy: Victoria's Tenebrae Responsories. There are no words in English to describe it, etc...

At Amazon are five used copies of the version sung by The Sixteen, and many more of the Tallis Scholars. Both are shockingly gorgeous performances.

Yes, I know it's pretty dark music for Laetare...
