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 he lived and those in which his music is currently found; under "Institutions", we list only the institutions where he 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 in Huesca and Zaragoza, but his music is found in at least twenty-two locations in Spain and the New World.

Biography: 

Unknown composer. Several lost works appear attributed to "Bargas" or "Vargas" in the 16th-century inventories of polyphonic choirbooks at Tarazona Cathedral. Perhaps this Vargas could be the Juan de Vargas "resident in Seville" who occupied positions as organist and teacher of choirboys in Seville and Antequera (Málaga). A motet for three voices, Popule meus quid feci tibi, found in the Legajo 30 at Puebla Cathedral in Mexico attributed to Vargas could be by him too.

Biography: 

Según Martín Tenllado, lo único que se sabe de Juan de Villalobos es que era maestro de capilla de la Catedral de Almería y en 1599 pasó a la Colegiata de Antequera, Málaga, donde estuvo hasta 1600. Una obra (sin texto) atribuida a Villalobos fue insertada en E-GRcr 1 (fols. 34v-35r); la obra siguiente (o la segunda pars de la anterior), también añadida y sin texto, es probable que sea del mismo autor.

Marín López (2007), p. 326, nota 13, afirma lo siguiente: "Otro Juan de Villalobos, hijo del anterior, ejerció como maestro de capilla en las catedrales de Almería (1614-1628) y Guadix (1628-1633) y opositó sin éxito (1631) a la Capilla Real granadina, donde se han conservado una pieza sin texto. En Zaragoza se conserva un villancico a seis (Vuestros amores) atribuido a “Villalobos”."

Javier Garbayo en "Zacarías Juan, Francsico", DMEH, vol. 10, p. 1076: "España, siglo XVIII. Maestro de capilla. Ejerció en Cartagena y Murcia. En 1716 era MC en Cartagena y desde allí intervino en la controversia oriinada por la Misa Scala aretina de Francico Valls a favor el músico catalán. No se sabe en qué fecha marchó a Murcia, desde donde emitiría su segundo juicio en la controversia, pero el 12 de agosto de 1728 figura como MC de la catedral de Murcia en la lista de opositores aspirantes a cubrir el magisterio de la capilla del Real Colegio de Corpus Christi en Valencia".

Según Garbayo todas las obras de Zacarías están en Segorbe (E-SEG); no se mencionan los cuatro Magnificat de Zacarías en E-MUc A-9.

Consuelo Prats Redondo, en "Murcia", DMEH, vol. 7, p. 893, menciona este maestro de capilla como "Francisco Juan Zacarías" y su período de servicio en la Catedral de Murcia: 1711-1731.
