The music selected for this recording belongs to the great repertory of the Spanish Renaissance, a period spanning the late 15th century up to the time of Victoria. The choice of music is based upon the connection among the various composers as their highly expressive use of musical colour. The works are of rare beauty and invite us to witness a veritable musical drama. Listening to the sequence of motets from Morales to Anchieta, from Esquivel to Guerrero is like processing along the aisle, viewing the bas-reliefs that represent each of the Stations of the Cross. Within the arc of the 14 stations the two visions of the prophet and the dramatic cry of Christ, have been inserted.
