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: 

Two 16th-century inventories of polyphonic music at Tarazona cathedral attribute a Sanctus and a Credo ("Patrem omnipotentem") to "Logroño", an unknown composer with the name of a location; this name is probably the result of the scribe's misreading of an ascription or it indicates the origin of the composer. See links below to the two documents (inventories) and the three items (descriptions of the choirbooks) where Logroño's name appears.

He entered as novice in Santa Ana in 1783, since a document in the monastery's archive, Leg. 3, dated 3 January 1783 (examined by María Gembero-Ustárroz) is the petition to accept Vicenta Martín Carrasco as nun musician, together with Francisca Tejedor Aparicio, another women musician also born in Toro. The petition was accepted the day after to be voted by the community of Santa Ana.

References: 

Juan Martínez was "maestro de los mozos de coro" at Seville Cathedral from ca. 1525 to after 1545. The attributions of two works, a Salve regina and a Te Deum, in E-GRcr 02 to the theorist Juan Martínez should be considered tentative, but plausible; although the manuscript was copied in 1785, it contains retrospective repertory from the 16th century. These two would be the only known works by him. For a detailed discussion about Juan Martínez, see Mazuela-Anguita (2014), p. 101-107.
