1649: Musics for the consecration of Puebla de los Ángeles Cathedral

 

The Cathedral of Puebla was consecrated on April 18, 1649, and on May 6 of that same year the illustrious Bishop Juan de Palafox y Mendoza (1600-1659) left the city and never returned. A detailed contemporary chronicle written by Antonio Tamariz relates these events, including the participation of composer Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla (1590-1664). The concert’s repertoire reflects a recent study of a set of seventeenth-century manuscripts preserved in the cathedral, which contains works by Gutiérrez de Padilla and Rogier that correspond to the liturgical calendar and to Tamariz’s descriptions.

Musicological project: Luisa Vilar-Payá

This research is the result of an agreement between the University of the Americas Puebla and the Archdiocese of Puebla. Thanks to the permits granted by Monsignor Víctor Sánchez Espinosa, Archbishop of Puebla and Canon Francisco Vázquez Ramírez, Rector of the Cathedral Basilica of Puebla, to analyze in detail the manuscripts related to this presentation.

Capella Prolationum. A vocal ensemble that seeks to recreate musical chapels from the Middle Ages to the seventeenth century, focusing especially on the Renaissance. Its objectives are to study, research, and perform the sacred repertoire following historically informed criteria. Among them, the use of original sources of canto de órgano (polyphony), both from the theoretical and practical point of view, allowing a more faithful approach to the musical practices of the ecclesiastical chapels of that period. The ensemble is made up of singers with a wide background and experience in the vocal world, performing with recognized choirs in festivals all over the world.

Ensemble La Danserye. Was created in 1998 in Calasparra (Murcia, Spain) with the aim of researching, recreating and spreading the music and wind instruments since the end of the Middle Ages to the beginning of the Baroque, focusing on the Renaissance period. La Danserye has taken part in numerous festivals and Early music series in Spain, France, Holland, Colombia and Mexico. Their members are committed to recovery the Spanish musical heritage through various projects like the first recording of music for wind bands in the New World (Choirbook XIX from Cathedral of Puebla, Mexico) published by the Spanish Society of Musicology in the collection The Hispanic Musical Heritage and the Manuscript 975 of the Manuel de Falla archive, in Granada (Lindoro label).
