The Spanish Renaissance composer Victoria’s Requiem Mass, written at the end of the Siglo de Oro (the Spanish Golden Age) is often regarded as a funeral for a departing era, and contrasts beautifully with the  work of the English composer Hubert Parry. Written during the First World War, Parry’s six Songs of Farewell can be seen as the pinnacle of his choral compositions, completed in the  last year of his life. The movements of the two works are interspersed to provide a unique listening experience.
