List of non-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.

The name "Mathia Flamengho" of this co-printer/editor of Villena's book of Magnificats, printed in Milan 1548, coincides with that of the composer Matthias Hermann Werrecore, often referred to as Mathias Fiamengo, chapelmaster at Milan's cathedral at that time. It is tempting to suggest that they could have been the same person.

Teresa García was a nephew of the singer and composer José García (d. 1720), who worked as tenor at the Cathedral of Ávila and chapelmaster at the Monastery of Santa Ana in the same town, as documented by Alfonso de Vicente (1989).

Teresa García was paid for the villancicos she provided for the main feasts in Santa Ana's Monastery between 1721 and 1724, as documented by María Gembero-Ustárroz in Madrid, Archivo Histórico Nacional (E-Mah), Clero Regular, Libro 500, fol.107r, and Libro 501, fol. 115v. Maybe this repertory had been composed by her uncle.

Biography: 

Alfonso de Vicente (2019) mentioned a piece by Agustín Gutiérrez, chapelmaster at the Monastery of Santa Ana, composed for the profession of that nun, celebrated the same day as the profession of the nun Joaquina Ugena: "Aria con violines y acompañamiento, para la profesión de Dª Joaquina y Dª María Ana, de Agustín Gutiérrez, 1788 [...]". Vicente (2019) also mentioned the following information about those nuns:
"Joaquina Ugena nació en Ávila en 1772, tomó el hábito el 20-VIII-1787, profesó el 24-VIII-1788 y murió el 22-X-1827.
María Ana González y Zurita nació en 1768, tomó el hábito y profesó los mismos días que la anterior (por ello el aria es para la profesión de ambas) y murió el 1-X-1830".

Biography: 

In the Diccionario de impresores españoles (Siglos XV-XVII) by Juan Delgado Casado there are three different printers with the name Juan de León: Juan de León I (active in León between 1526? and 1534); Juan de León II (active in Seville and Osuna between 1544 and 1555) is the printer of music books by Alonso Mudarra, Juan Vázquez and Juan Bermudo; and Juan de León III (active in Seville between 1585 and 1617). 

Regarding the music printer Juan de León, Delgado's Diccionario , 381-382, states the following: "Los datos básicos sobre este impresor nos los proporciona Aurora Domínguez, quien indica que Juan de León inicia su actividad en Sevilla en 1545. No obstante, Klaus Wagner ha señalado la posible identidad entre este Juan de León, seguramente oriundo de Lyon, y Juan Picardo, impresor también de procedencia francesa, basándose en que Juan de León tiene elementos decorativos que utiliza Juan Picardo en Zamora en 1543. Las coincidencias en la nacionalidad, las fechas de sus impresiones y la utilización del mismo material han llevado a Wagner a esta conclusión. Instalado en 'Santa María de Gracia' y en 'Santa Marina en la calle Real', trabaja hasta 1549 en Sevilla, destacando en la impresión de libros de música que incluyen abundantes grabados. De su producción se pueden recordar especialmente el Tratado de la sphera (1545) de Juan de Sacrobosco y los Tres libros de música en cifras para vihuela (1546) de Alonso Mudarra. En 1549 se traslada a Osuna, como impresor de la Universidad, hasta 1555, fecha de su última impresión. En esta ciudad es mencionado también como impresor de Juan Téllez Girón, conde de Ureña. En Osuna hace, entre otras obras, Villancicos y canciones (1551) de Juan Vázquez, Argonautica (1553) de Cayo Valerio Flaco y Declaración de instrumentos musicales (1555) de Juan Bermudo, excelente impresión con grabados. Para algunos investigadores, Juan de León es el padre de otro impresor de igual nombre, también instalado en Sevilla años después, aunque hay muchos años de diferencia entre la actividad de uno y otro. Además, el material del primer Juan de León pasa a otros impresores y no es el que utiliza el segundo Juan de León. Efectivamente, el citado Wagner alude a elementos decorativos de Juan de León que pasan a Montesdoca, y Frida Weber, por su parte, indica que algún detalle ornamental de León parece que pasa a Sebastián Trujillo y de éste a Juan Canalla".
