    REQUIEM
    Music for Royal Spanish Funerals

    La Maîtrise de Toulouse
    Conservatoire de Toulouse
    Les Sacqueboutiers
    Ensemble de cuivres anciens de Toulouse
    Directed by Mark Opstad

    The inspiration for this recording was the desire of both La Maîtrise de Toulouse and Les Sacqueboutiers, the renowned Toulouse ensemble of early brass instruments, to collaborate on an original programme which would highlight the unique quality of  combined children’s voices and wind instruments of the Renaissance. One of the most famous works of this period, Victoria’s Requiem lent itself particularly well to this idea, and that a performance combining the ‘niños cantorcicos’, as the choristers in Spain were known, and the ‘ministriles’, wind players attached to cathedral churches, could create a fresh impression of the sonorities usually associated with this work. It is the centre-piece of this programme of music for a Royal Spanish funeral which also includes several unknown and rediscovered pieces recorded here for the first time.
