Music and Musicians in the Escorial Liturgy Under the Habsburgs, 1563-1700

Portada
University Rochester Press, 1998 - 396 páginas
Philip II of Spain founded the great Spanish monastery and royal palace of El Escorial in 1563, promoting within it a musical foundation whose dual function as royal chapel and monastery in the service of a Counter Reformation monarch was unique; this volume explores the performance and composition of liturgical music there from its beginnings to the death of Charles II in 1700. It traces the ways in which music styles and practices responded to the the changing functions of the institution, challenging notions about Spanish musical patronage, scrutinising musical manuscripts, uncovering the biographical details of hundreds of musicians, and examining musical practices.

Michael Noone is Professor of Musicology at the University of Hong Kong.
