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.

Hay algunas obras de un [Francisco] Gutiérrez en el Archivo de la Catedral de Tui, Pontevedra. La voz "Gutiérrez, Francisco" en el DMEH no menciona estas obras, pero podría tratarse de otro músico de igual nombre del s. XVII con tres piezas en el "Cancionero de Medinaceli" (No. 13231), conocido también por Tonos castellanos, B de la antigua biblioteca de los duques de Medinaceli (Biblioteca Bartolomé March). También podría tratarse del autor de un Memento mei en el manuscrito E-CCs.s. copiado en 1633 en Carrión de los Condes (Palencia).

In March of 1520 Alfonso wrote to Charles V on behalf of his brother Pedro asking for a chaplancy in Soria, arguing that he had no income.

En agosto de 1748 fue despedido del cargo, pues estaba preso 'por hallarse demandado por el deslinde de unas heredades', aunque apeló ante el obispo, quien comunicó al Cabildo para que le repusiese en el puesto, lo que efectivamente hizo, siguiendo de maestro hasta su muerte.... En 1761 pidió Hernández al Cabildo una especie de jubilación por su mucha edad y achaques; el Cabildo acordó que siguiese haciendo lo que buenamente pudiese. Siguió componiendo los habituales villancicos para la Navidad y el Corpus hasta 1777; finalmente, en los últimos días de ese año on en los primeros de 1778 el Cabildo acordó jubilarlo."

Unknown composer. The manuscript E-C 143 contains an Officium and Missa defunctorum by Antonio Hidalgo copied in 1760.

A contemporary organ builder and organist named Juan Antonio de Bartolomé Hidalgo (Bañares, La Rioja, ? — Granada, 10-V-1805) was active in Plasencia (Cáceres) and Granada in the 1770s. At the archive of Granada cathedral, a Miserere for 12 voices with instrumental accompaniment copied in 1777 is ascribed to "Hidalgo"; Juan Ruiz Jiménez suggests that this piece could be by this organist.

Perhaps Antonio Hidalgo, the composer present in E-C 143, is the same person as the organ builder and organist Juan Antonio de Bartolomé Hidalgo.

Biography: 

The known works by Francisco de la Huerta are found in "papeles sueltos" (particelle) and not in choibooks. He has been incorporated to this database, since he was an important chapelmaster in different cathedrals and at the Monastery of Santa Ana in Ávila; he obviously had direct contact with the books of polyphony and with the performance of that repertory in the institutions where he worked.

The main part of the extant compositions by Huerta are preserved in the Pamplona Cathedral and in the Monastery of Santa Ana in Ávila, but there are also pieces by him preserved in the cathedrals of Ávila, Astorga (León), the Collegiate Church of San Miguel de Alfaro (La Rioja), the Royal Collegiate of Roncesvalles (Navarre), and the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial (Madrid).

The Letatus sum for four voices ascribed to Jalón in E-OLI s.s. (pp. 7-14) is not listed by Ezquerro Esteban among the works by Luis Bernardo Jalón, a composer that has been cited with different first names (Luis Jerónimo, Luis Bautista). Ezquerro suggests that perhaps there were two composers with the same last name Jalón (Luis and Bernardo or Luis Bernardo and Luis Jerónimo) and that he could be confused also with the organist Pedro Jalón y Tejada who died in 1655.

The piece Tu valer me da gran guerra in E-Sco 7-1-26 ("Cancionero Musical de la Colombina") is attributed to "Juanes", but it is not possible to ascertain the identity of this composer. Stevenson (1960), 235, indicated that the contra of this work "is rough to the point of uncouthness" and, thus, he dismissed attributing it to Juan de Anchieta, even though his name as "Juanes" had been used: "Juanes de Anchieta capellan e cantor de su alteza" [cited in Barbieri (1890), 22].
