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.

Biography: 

Alfonso de Vicente, in his music catalogue of the Monastery of Santa Ana de Ávila (1989), p. 68, among the works included in the book of polyphony E-Asa 12 [for piece E-Asa 12 No.8] annotated the following: "307. Fol. 34 v: MORALES Y DE LA REDONDA (?), Misa". In this database, the piece has been provisionally associated with Cristóbal de Morales and with an unknown composer named De la Redonada or from (de) La Redonda. According to DIAMM, the composer was not Cristóbal de Morales, but perhaps Rodrigo Morales; see https://www.diamm.ac.uk/sources/2795/#/inventory. However, since Cristóbal de Morales was chapelmaster at Ávila cathedral in 1526, it cannot be discarded that a hitherto unknown early composition by him would have survived in that city.

La Redonda, a village in the province of Salamanca, is 206 km far from Ávila, and perhaps the ascription of this missa refers to an unknown Morales (a very common name in Spain) from that location or the piece is in some way related to that village. The incorporation to the database of "De la Redonda" as a composer perhaps will contribute to clarify this ascription in the future.
