An Office of Compline for Baeza Cathedral (c.1620)

 

This concert proposes the reconstruction of an Office of Compline as celebrated in the first third of the 17th century in the Cathedral of Baeza, based on polyphonic music composed by two of its chapel masters: Manuel de Tavares (1608 to 1612) and his disciple and successor Juan Ruiz Ramírez (1612 to 1623). The handwritten music is included in BaezaC 4, one of the six polyphony books that still survive in the Baeza archive. This is a precious testimony of the music of one of the humblest offices of the Liturgy of the Hours.

Capella Prolationum. A vocal ensemble that seeks to recreate musical chapels from the Middle Ages to the seventeenth century, focusing especially on the Renaissance. Their 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), from the theoretical and practical points 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. This group was created in 1998 in Calasparra (Murcia, Spain) with the aim of researching, recreating and disseminating the music for wind instruments from the late 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 the recovery of 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 Musicological Society as part of the collection The Hispanic Musical Heritage, as well as the Manuscript 975 of the Manuel de Falla archive in Granada (Lindoro label).
