List of musicians and 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.

Periods of service:

1603-1630 Capilla Real de Granada, maestro de capilla
Biography: 

Born in Portugal he studied with Antònio Ferro in Portalegre Cathedral, where he was as a choirboy. Nothing else is known of him until 1601, when he figures as a Chapelmaster in the Capilla del Salvador in Úbeda (Jaén). In 1603 he secured a post as chapelmaster at the Capilla Real in Granada. He composed vernacular music which is now lost and, according to Stevenson (2001): "His surviving music (in E-GRcr) includes four penitential motets (Domine nos secundum peccata nostra, In jejunio et fletu and Adjuva nos for four voices and Adjuva nos for three), two four-part Passions —one for Palm Sunday (St Matthew), the other for Good Friday (St John)— and two incomplete Lamentations verses, Quomodo sedet sola civitas and Non est inventus similis illi, both for four voices".

Manuel Avilez, also known as "Lusitano" and author of the compositions in E-GRcr 1 and E-GRcr 6, should not be confused with the more famous theorist and composer Vicente Lusitano, active in Italy.
