Tomás Luis de Victoria: God’s Composer

Tomás Luis de Victoria was born in Avila and was sent to Rome to become a Jesuit priest under the recommendation of St Teresa of Avila.
He is the greatest, albeit little known, composer of Catholic devotional music in the Renaissance.

The Link is to the wonderful BBC4 documentary on his life and works.
