[RENAISSANCE MASTERPIECE] If you have to pick only one of the major choral concerts happening this weekend, it’s hard to resist one of the foremost works of the Renaissance: the great Spanish composer Tomas Luis de Victoria’s “Officium Defunctorum,” written for the funeral of the Holy Roman Empress, who also happened to be the Spanish king’s sister. But what makes this concert even more special is that Victoria’s magnificent Requiem Mass is performed with only one singer to a part, affording a transparency rarely achieved in the usual big choral versions. Performing this masterpiece in that way demands only the finest singers. Fortunately, this concert includes the cream of the city’s top choirs. 

Where: St. Stephen's Church
Address: 1112 SE 41st Ave.
