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.

Biography: 

She was a nun organist and composer, and the author of the hymn Conditor alme siderum, included in the tablature book Libro de Cifra Nueva para tecla, arpa y vihuela (Alcalá de Henares, 1557) by Luis Venegas de Henestrosa [RISM V1108]. In the introductory study to the modern edition of this source, Higinio Anglés (1944), p. 178, annotated about the Gracia Baptista's piece (Nº. 107 within the edition):

"107. GRACIA BAPTISTA, monja. Conditor alme. Himno XXII.
Se trata del himno de Adviento Conditor alme siderum / aeterna lux credentium (CHEVALIER, 3733). Por la melodía gregoriana que sirve de cantus firmus, véase Antiphonale Romanum (1919), páginas 185 ss. Nos es desconocido el nombre de esta organista española".

See the edition of the piece by Anglés (1944) in open access (PDF format) in the series Monumentos de la Música Española 2, p. 155 of the music edition, through the link: http://libros.csic.es/product_info.php?products_id=994

Josemi Lorenzo Arribas (1998), pp. 25-28, commented several typographical and printing mistakes in the original edition that resulted in a problematic transmission of the piece (the first Hispanic composition attributed to a woman), as well as an unsatisfactory historiographical projection of her composer, the nun Gracia Baptista.
