Sacred Music: Renaissance to Romantic

The outstanding Choralia site has the Mozart mass and two of the Bruckner pieces. Choralia automatically 'voices' the words alongside the music:

Help for the other works is rather more difficult to find online. There are two sites where you can download and play 'MIDI' files, but beware that these are less of an option for iPad users than they are for those using Windows.

Here are links to YouTube performances:

- Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611), O Quam Gloriosum
- Thomas Tallis (1505-1585), Hear the Voice and Prayer
- Henry Purcell (1659-1695), O God Thou art my God and Hear my Prayer
- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Missa Brevis in D
- Anton Bruckner (1824-1896), Locus Iste, Virga Jesse  and Os Justi
