Renaissance, Mannerism and Baroque: from Palestrina to Lotti

 

The Council of Trent (1545-1563) marked a watershed in liturgical music. Today we will listen to musical examples following the requirements of the Council, such as works of Palestrina and Victoria, as well as music by other Italian composers who preferred alternative styles such as Gesualdo, Gabrieli, Monteverdi, Lotti or Marcello.

He is assistant conductor of the Coro de la Orquesta Ciudad de Granada (and co-director of the Coro Joven), director of the Coro de Ópera de Granada, Orfeón de Granada, Coro Emprendes Música de Sevilla, Proyecto Nur and ARS XXI, among others. In addition, he works as a choral teacher at the Escuela Coral de Madrid and for the Schola Pueri Cantores of Granada Cathedral.

Orfeón de Granada. The origins of the Orfeón de Granada date back to 1903, when Francisco Alonso founded an Orfeón under the auspices of the Sociedad Filarmónica de Granada. The most relevant periods of its history are from its foundation to 1911, and from 1938 when Orfeón de Granada was conducted by Valentín Ruiz Aznar. Later on, the Orfeón de Granada resumed its activity in 2003 under the conduction of Ángel López Carreño, Francisco Ruiz Montes, Héctor Eliel Márquez, José Carlos Palomares and, currently, Pablo Guerrero Elorza. These conductors have brought together a variety of traditional a cappella works and symphonic repertoire.
