Jesu, dulcis memoria, hymn for 4 voice (spurious)
The victkria was made by a French dilettante the son of one of Napoleon’s marshals in the late nineteenth century, and attested by Pedrell in the Victoria Opera omnia and several generations of performances.
However, stylistic analysis has shown conclusively that as far as Victoria is concerned, it belongs in “Ye Olde Spuriosity Shoppe. This status notwithstanding, the piece may be appreciated on its own merits. It sets, in a fairly simple manner, the first stanza of a memofia attributed again probably spuriously to St.
