Three Motets after Victoria / Joseph Twist / Morton Music / satb divisi a cappella

Versa est in Luctum
Lamentations of Jeremiah
Hombres, Victoria, Victoria!

This “Victoria Triptych” was written in 2011, the 400th anniversary of the death of the great Spanish Renaissance polyphonist.  It was commissioned by Warren Trevelyan-Jones for performance by three Australian vocal ensembles - the Consort of Melbourne, The Choir of St. James', King Street, Sydney, and St. Mary’s Cathedral Choir, Sydney.
Victoria's works are full of outstanding musical elements from which to draw inspiration, rich with wonderful arching phrases and ingenious part writing. As many 16th century composers paid homage to pre-existing music by way of 'parody' or 'imitation', Twist has adopted a similar technique in these pieces. Twist’s Lamentation of Jeremiah literally quotes parts of Victoria's Lamentations throughout, while Hombres Victoria, Victoria! and Versa est in Luctum, utilise material from Victoria's Missa Pro Victoria and the Requiem Mass Officium Defunctorum respectively. 
However, throughout each work this ‘parody’ technique is taken further.  With hundreds of years of music since Victoria's time, the incorporated Victoria is gradually juxtaposed and synthesised with musical language that borrows from 19th and 20th centuries. Echoes of Victoria's part-writing are suffused throughout the thematic and harmonic material of all these new works, combined with more modern influences including repetitive minimalist vocal textures and a rich, plaintive harmonic language.
