Remarks: A splendid example of polychoral writing, but, untypically, this piece does not treat the two choirs as separate entities answering simply back and forth. Instead, Victoria combines and re-combines the separate voices of the two choirs in ever-changing groupings to achieve remarkably diverse color changes and grandly sonorous effects.   View Sample Score
