List of musicians

Info

This website provides basic information about musicians and non-musicians related to music books in the database; it is not intended to present a full biography of musicians, but to establish useful connections with their sources, institutions, locations, works, documents, and bibliography. Under "Locations" of a composer's entry we list all the locations in which the composer lived and those in which his music is currently found; under "Institutions", we list only the institutions where the composer worked or to which he applied for a position through the so-called "oposiciones". Whenever possible, we'll try to indicate the approximate periods of service in each institution. The distinction between "Locations" and "Institutions" provides a useful overview about the dissemination of a composer's works; for instance, Sebastián Aguilera de Heredia (1561-1627) worked only in two cathedrals ("institutions") in Huesca and Zaragoza, but his music is found in at least twenty-two "locations" in Spain and the New World.

Three composite choirbooks mostly copied by him are now in the Biblioteca Civica and are the only manuscript sources of Alberti's creative production. Three of his masses were published in partbooks in Venice in 1549. A short motet is reproduced in Giuseppe Belli's portrait of the composer". 

The three masses copied in his Il primo libro delle messe (Venice, 1549) are: Missa Queramus cum pastoribus (5vv); Missa Italia mia (6vv); and Missa Dormend'un giorno (6vv).

Manuel Albiac, an Augustinian monk, was the author of an "Arte de escribir libros de coro (en borrador)" (Zaragoza, 1835) [16 leaves +120 pages], an original and unpublished manuscript at the Library of the Hispanic Society of America in New York [HC380/812]; this entry with a brief description is found in Karl W. Hiersemann, Bibliotheca Iberica, being a choice collection of scarce and valuable books and manuscripts on Spain and Portugal... containing partly the libraries of D. Antonio de la Peña y Guillén, cura castrense de la plaza de Madrid, D. Federico Olmeda, Pbro. maestro de capilla de Burgos and other collections (Leipzig: Karl W. Hiersemann, Catalog 380, [ca. 1911]), p. 185:

"Albiac, Man., o S. Aug., arte de escribir libros de coro (borrador). Manuscrito original e inédito del autor. En-4. Zaragoza 1835. Piel. 16 hojas y 120 pp. Diese unveröffentlicht gebliebene Anleitung zur kalligraphischen Ausführung von Missalen und Antiphonarien gibt hauptsächlich Vorlagen von geometrisch konstruirten Majuskeln und Minuskeln der Antiquaschrift. Das Werk sollte dem Domkapitel von Zaragoza gewidmet wereden, ist aber über diesen ersten Entwurf nicht hinausgekommen."

Although the description refers to the calligraphy of chant books, given the rarity of this unique manuscript, it is also of interest for the copying process of music manuscripts in general, including those of polyphony.

Born in Portugal he studied with Antònio Ferro in Portalegre Cathedral, where he was as a choirboy. Nothing else is known of him until 1601, when he figures as a Chapelmaster in the Capilla del Salvador in Úbeda (Jaén). In 1603 he secured a post as chapelmaster at the Capilla Real in Granada. He composed vernacular music which is now lost and, according to Stevenson (2001): "His surviving music (in E-GRcr) includes four penitential motets (Domine nos secundum peccata nostra, In jejunio et fletu and Adjuva nos for four voices and Adjuva nos for three), two four-part Passions —one for Palm Sunday (St Matthew), the other for Good Friday (St John)— and two incomplete Lamentations verses, Quomodo sedet sola civitas and Non est inventus similis illi, both for four voices".

Manuel Avilez, also known as "Lusitano" and author of the compositions in E-GRcr 1 and E-GRcr 6, should not be confused with the more famous theorist and composer Vicente Lusitano, active in Italy.

An inscription in the book of polyphony 6 at Palencia cathedral (E-PAL 6) with works by Joaquín Martínez de la Roca Bolea (ca. 1676-ca. 1756) identifies the copyist as follows: "Siendo Fabriquero de esta / Sta.

Biography: 

She was a nun organist and composer, and the author of the hymn Conditor alme siderum, included in the tablature book Libro de Cifra Nueva para tecla, arpa y vihuela (Alcalá de Henares, 1557) by Luis Venegas de Henestrosa [RISM V1108]. In the introductory study to the modern edition of this source, Higinio Anglés (1944), p. 178, annotated about the Gracia Baptista's piece (Nº. 107 within the edition):

"107. GRACIA BAPTISTA, monja. Conditor alme. Himno XXII.
Se trata del himno de Adviento Conditor alme siderum / aeterna lux credentium (CHEVALIER, 3733). Por la melodía gregoriana que sirve de cantus firmus, véase Antiphonale Romanum (1919), páginas 185 ss. Nos es desconocido el nombre de esta organista española".

See the edition of the piece by Anglés (1944) in open access (PDF format) in the series Monumentos de la Música Española 2, p. 155 of the music edition, through the link: http://libros.csic.es/product_info.php?products_id=994

Josemi Lorenzo Arribas (1998), pp. 25-28, commented several typographical and printing mistakes in the original edition that resulted in a problematic transmission of the piece (the first Hispanic composition attributed to a woman), as well as an unsatisfactory historiographical projection of her composer, the nun Gracia Baptista.

See also Josemi Lorenzo Arribas (2011) for a more detailed study on Gracia Baptista, including a new edition of her Conditor alme siderum prepared by Bruno Forst.
