By SONIA ALMOGUERA (HERALDO DE SORIA) 14/09/2020
The most exquisite polyphony of the Spanish Renaissance, by the prestigious choir El León de Oro, and the good work of the Young Symphony Orchestra of Soria (JOSS) in a demanding repertoire with works by Haydn and Mendelssohn were part of the double session that yesterday, Sunday, were offered by the Soriano Musical Autumn Festival (FOMS) in the Odón Alonso Auditorium of the Palacio de la Audiencia Cultural Center. The public once again responded to this double call that demanded extreme anti-COVID health precautions with an exhaustive cleaning of seats and ventilation of the hall between concerts.
Having won this year the award of the FestClásica Circuit in the category of ancient music, El León de Oro offered, in the morning, a beautiful concert conducted by Marco Antonio García de Paz who, under the title “Margarita Pretiosa”, that rescued the most precious and unknown treasures of Spanish choral music from the Renaissance. To the works of the best known Tomás Luis de Vitoria (Regina caeli), Cristóbal de Morales or Francisco Guerrero (Magnificat quarti toni) this internationally famous group also added the discovery of pieces by Melchor Robledo (Simile est regnum, Veni sponsa Christi) , Juan Navarro (Laudate dominium) or Diego Ortiz (Sancta et immaculata).
