Beautiful Music NOW - Antonio Duran de la Motta


There is some question about whether Antonio Duran de la Motta was Spanish or Portuguese. We do know the musician was also a priest, and spent most of his career working in Bolivia. Antonio Duran de la Motta was chapel master of the Mother Church of Potosí in Charcas, Bolivia. Today's Beautiful Music is his lovely psalm setting DIXIT DOMINUS for three choirs.
