"Tomás Luis de Victoria occupies a crucial place in the emergence of the polychoral idiom in Rome in the 1570s. His eight-voice Ave Maria, published in 1572, was closer to being a full cori spezzati setting than Palestrina's eight-voice pieces of the same year. In 1576 Victoria published the first Roman polychoral Vesper psalm settings. He introduced polychoral music to the Collegio Germanico where it was to flourish under his successors: Annibale Stabile, Ruggiero Giovanelli, Asprilio Pacelli, Ottavio Catalani. Victoria and Palestrina, following the pioneering work of Giovanni Animuccia, established a Roman dialect of the polychoral idiom, with harmonically-independent choirs and independent bass-lines. Given Rome's increasingly dominant position as both examplar and codifier of liturgical practice in Catholic Europe, this Roman polychoral dialect was to spread widely, particularly in the Iberian peninsula. This was particularly so after Victoria's re-publishing of his polychoral music in Madrid in 1600. This paper will examine the polychoral works of Victoria in their Roman compositional and liturgical contexts".
