New Requiem Masses Sixteen Century!! Can't Post

New!!
Dear friends,

from Fidelio Musica we would like to present the world’s first publication of Misa de requiem (requiem mass) by the Spanish composer Antonio Gallego (c.1530).

Antonio Gallego was a Spanish Renaissance composer whose existence has been totally unknown up to the present day. His Pro-Defunctis Mass has recently been discovered by the Spanish musicologist and ancient music researcher Virginia Florentín in a hidden manuscript of Valladolid’s Cathedral (Spain).

No choir in the world has sung this Mass up to the present date.
This publication also contains a preliminary study with a complete explanation about the work, archive of Valladolid Cathedral, manuscript volume 5 page 59v.

Pedro Escobar composed this Requiem for the funeral of Isabel the Catholic and it was later performed at the funerals of Ferdinand the Catholic and Cardinal Cisneros.
It is the first Mass of polyphonic Requiem composed in the Iberian Peninsula and whose manuscript is housed by the Cathedral of Tarazona.

Pedro de Escobar from Portugal was one of the most important composers of the Iberian Peninsula in the generation of Josquin Desprez. His work includes the composition of several Masses, a collection of motets and hymns, carols and particularly the Requiem Mass. The importance of the Requiem for four male voices is that this is the oldest Requiem known of any composer of the Iberian Peninsula and one of the first in Europe. The work includes the complete works, a biography of the author and the corresponding notes to the edition.

With best wishes.
