Why not seize the 
pleasure at once?
How often is happiness 
destroyed by preparation, 
foolish preparation?

Music is not of human invention, 
but is our heritage from
the blessed spirits.

* Tomás Luis de Victoria (sometimes Italianised as da Vittoria; c. 1548 – c. 20–27 August 1611) was the most famous Spanish composer of the Renaissance. He stands with Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and Orlande de Lassus as among the principal composers of the late Renaissance, and was "admired above all for the intensity of some of his motets and of his Offices for the Dead and for Holy Week".[1] Unlike his colleagues, however, his surviving oeuvre is almost exclusively sacred and polyphonic vocal music, set to Latin texts. As a Catholic priest, as well as an accomplished organist and singer, his career spanned both Spain and Italy. However, he preferred the life of a composer to that of a performer.[2] Wikipedia
