Comments:
Information from owned CD. Reference to the LP appears in the backcover of the CD Box. The backcover of the box is rather obscure stating that tracks [8]-[10] were recorded at the same time as Josquin's motets, but the inner booklet leads us to believe that Victoria's section has been all recorded in 1987!
