The “canto al órgano” in the Holy Kingdom of Jaén (16th and 17th centuries)

The Cathedral of Jaén has always had music from all over Europe for the cult. An inventory of 1657 details the polyphony books that were used by the Chapel. Javier Marín has studied this inventory, demonstrating that Jaén Cathedral had access to the best European and, of course, Spanish music. People attending the offices celebrated at the cathedral were able to listen to music of Iberian composers such as Cristóbal de Morales, Tomás Luis de Victoria, Francisco Guerrero or Francisco Correa de Araujo (organist himself at Jaén cathedral), but also by international masters such as Claudin de Sermisy, Josquin des Prez and Palestrina.
