Victoria’s Requiem for 4 Voices on All Souls in Littleton, Colorado

The FSSP parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Littleton, Colorado will celebrate High Mass on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, both starting at 7 pm. On All Saints, the music will include Mass II, the Gregorian propers of the day, and selected motets. On All Souls’ Day, the church will host both professional singers and members of the Vittoria Ensemble in Denver, joining with its own choir to sing Victoria’s Missa Pro Defunctis, along with several motets and the immemorial Gregorian Chants. The musicians will be performing the Victoria Requiem Mass for 4 voices, which is rarely used, since the 6-part requiem seems to have taken all the attention among Victoria’s works. The church is located at 5620 S. Hickory Circle.
