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.

Beatrice of Aragon, daughter of Ferdinand I of Naples and Isabella of Clermont, was twice queen of Hungary by her marriages to Matthias Corvinus (in 1476) and, after his death in 1490, to Vladislaus II (in 1491), but the latter marriage was declared illegal by the pope in 1500, and she returned to Naples in 1502. 

The Mellon chansonnier was most likely compiled as a wedding gift for Beatrice ca. 1475-1476.
