De Lamentatione Jeremiae Prophetae:
Liturgical reconstruction of the first nocturne of the Matins of Holy Saturday at the Cathedral of Malaga in the second third of the 18th century
The expectation generated by the performance of the Lamentaciones del profeta Jeremías in the context of the Tenebrae Office on the central days of Holy Week is only comparable to the annual premiere of the Christmas villancicos which replaced Christmas Eve’s responses. A collection of 24 lamentations composed by Juan Francés de Iribarren (1699-1767), who developed his magisterium at the Cathedral of Malaga in the second third of the 18th century (from 1733 until his death), is preserved. Moreover, among the documentation of the Archive of Malaga Cathedral, a series of very useful documents are preserved. This series allows reconstructing the ceremony in detail. In this way, we will be able to enjoy the Lamentations in their context, which leads to a better understanding of them.

Since its creation, it has been arranging different teaching initiatives such as the so-called Laboratorios musicales or the Talleres estivales. Their most outstanding performance was the Passio Christi by M. Frisina in April 2018, with the Escolanía del Real Monasterio de El Escorial at the Teatro Cervantes in Malaga. They have also recorded two CDs, Salvador del Mundo and Es grande el amor del Señor, including music by the same composer.
Capilla de Música “Maestro Iribarren”. Founded in 2006, this group was born with the aim of researching, performing and disseminating the rich heritage that treasures the Archivo de Música de la Catedral de Málaga. From its foundation, it has presented multiple instrumental chamber concerts, combined with solo voices or chamber choirs. Thanks to the research carried out by its conductor into the chapter music archive, this group have brought to live unpublished works of 18th-century chapel masters, such as Juan Francés de Iribarren and Jaime Torrens, which has resulted in the collection Monumentos sonoros de la Catedral de Málaga, including three titles –Música en honor de los patronos Ciriaco y Paula, A la Inmaculada Concepción de la Virgen and Música de Pasión–.

Schola Gregoriana del Pontificio Istituto di Musica Sacra. Created in 1911, the same year that academic training in music began at the Scuola Superiore di Musica Sacra. The main purpose of the Schola is the constant exercise of Gregorian chant providing students with mastery and competence in the matter. In this way, at the end of their studies, when they return to their respective dioceses, they will disseminate their experience as Chapel Masters at Cathedrals or teachers at diocesan sacred music schools. The Schola actively collaborates with Vatican Radio and participates in papal liturgies in the Sistine Chapel. Many Students of the Istituto have subsequently founded their own Scholae Cantorum and perform Gregorian chants in the liturgy, in concerts (United States, 2018) and in high level festivals (Watou, 2018, and Krakow, 2019).
