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.

Biography: 

Susana Muñoz's important printing activity in Salamanca has been pointed out —on the ocasion of the recent finding of a unique copy of the 1620 book of sacred polyphony [Magnificats, misas, motetes] by Diego de Bruceña— in a paper presented by Michael Noone, "A 'lost' choirbook recovered: Diego de Bruceña’s 1620 collection of sacred polyphony", Medieval and Renaisance Music Conference, Basel, 3-6 July 2019, Abstracts, p. 48: "On 23 February 1620 Diego de Bruceña, maestro de capilla of Zamora cathedral, signed a contract with Susana Muñoz for the printing of a choirbook containing about 30 pieces of sacred polyphony. Although the contract has been carefully studied by Luis Iglesias (2002), it was thought that no copy of the book was extant. The recent discovery of a unique copy in the cathedral of Miranda do Douro, however, allows a much closer understanding of the contract and, by extension, the prodigious activities of the music printer Susana Muñoz. Through her marriage in Salamanca to the Antwerp-born Artus Tavernier in the late 16th century, Muñoz founded a press that issued more polyphonic choirbooks than any other Spanish press: in the period 1607-1620, seven atlas-sized polyphonic choirbooks emerged, accounting for more than 260 pieces by three composers (Vivanco, Esquivel, and Bruceña), spread over more than 2,000 pages of print. This newly-discovered print throws new light not only on Bruceña and his otherwise unknown music, but also adds to our knowledge of a hitherto unstudied explosion of printed polyphony in Salamanca in the period 1607-1620".

L.F. Bernstein says that "the music is attributed variously to Regnes, Rene, Renes, Rennes, Renez, Reveré, Revertz and Revez (generaly no forename is given) but there is no consistent correlation between one form and any stylistic traits".

Biography: 

According to Alfonso de Vicente (1989), p. 17, "Carmen Sáenz de Tejada, cantora, organista y arpista" (singer, organist and harpist), born in Logroño in 1772, was professed as a nun in the Monastery of Santa Ana de Ávila in 1788, and she died there in 1836. The same author, though, in a later publication (2019), available at http://www.historicalsoundscapes.com/evento/1016/avila/es, annotated: "Carmen Sáenz y Tejada nació en Logroño, tomó el hábito en 1786 con catorce años por lo que hubo de esperar dos años hasta el 18-VII-1788 para profesar. Murió el 10-I-1839. Fue cantora, organista y arpista; numerosas partichelas indican su nombre como intérprete". The recitado and aria A ti, padre amoroso / Ven, de Cristo esposa (1788) by Agustín Gutiérrez, chapelmaster in Santa Ana's Monastery, for soprano, organ and accompaniment, was composed for her religious profession (No. 635 in Vicente's catalogue, 1989, p. 156).
