CATHOLIC Church music, WIND instrument music, SPANISH music -- History & criticism, 16TH century music -- History & criticism, MUSIC -- Manuscripts, EARLY-music groups, SPANISH hymns, and MOTETS
Five surviving manuscripts—Granada 975, Lerma 1, Utrecht 3.L.16, Segovia 6 and Puebla 19—appear to represent the repertory of the Spanish and New World church wind-bands of the 16th and early 17th centuries. Segovia 6 contains only motets, but the others all mix motets, fabordon verses, hymn verses, chansons, madrigals and Spanish songs in proportions that parallel recent documentary views of the activities of the bands in the church year. There is a good deal of overlap, suggesting a kind of core repertory shared by many of these ensembles, but not so much as to suggest that the sources are anything but independent. The manuscripts are carefully organized and sometimes labelled by genre, suggesting that psalms, hymns, motets and music of secular origin had distinct uses and levels of status for the musicians and the church establishment. Inventories of the Utrecht and Puebla manuscripts are given as appendixes to the article. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
