First published:
Description: A short "Regina coeli" for solo soprano and 4 part choir. 3 further parts were added at a later date in a different hand. These have not been included. According to the entry by Yvonne Levasseur-de-Rebollo in Grove's Dictionary of Music, opinion is divided as to whether there may have been a second musician named José de Torres (possibly the son of the first). This work may perhaps be attributed to the junior Torres, since it is stylistically so different from the other works.
