“Church officials frequently asked Tomás Luis de Victoria for his opinion on cathedral appointments because of his fame and knowledge. He was faithful to his position as convent organist even after his professional debut as an organist, and never accepted any extra pay for being a chapelmaster. Held in great esteem, his contract allowed him frequent travel away from the convent, and he attended Palestrina's funeral (in Rome) in 1594.”
— Dr. Robert Stevenson, 1961 (mod.)

RISTOTLE A. ESGUERRA has served in the Diocese of Madison since 2009 as music director at the churches of St. Mary, Pine Bluff and St. Ignatius, Mount Horeb, and as the chant instructor to the Cistercian Nuns of Valley of Our Lady Monastery, Prairie du Sac.

A passionate advocate of sung liturgy, he also serves as a cantor at the sung Masses celebrated by the Diocesan Vicar General — one of which is sung in Latin, the other in English. He has studied and sung Gregorian chant extensively since 2001, and its influence is reflected in his vernacular liturgical compositions for the Mass: ordinaries, responsorial psalms, and proper antiphons.
