The polyphonic compositions on Marian texts by Juan de Esquivel Barahona : a study of institutional Marian devotion in late Renaissance Spain by Michael Brian O'Connor( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout its history Spain has held a special affection for the Virgin Mary. Popular devotion was reflected in the Church's celebrations on her feast days, which were held with the utmost solemnity. The Spanish affection for the Virgin was also apparent in the devotional music written by native composers, who devoted much of their compositional output to antiphons, hymns, and motets on Marian texts. Juan de Esquivel Barahona served the Catholic Church during a time of great change, as Spanish cathedrals began to adapt their traditional practices to the recently accepted Roman Rite. As a Spanish cleric and composer, he was exposed to both the popular traditions and the institutional requirements of Marian devotion. His understanding of the post-conciliar spirit is revealed in his close adherence to the texts and liturgical calendar of the 1602 Clement VIII breviary, but his understanding of Spanish Marian devotion appears in the use of Spanish chants and the emulation of older Spanish masters in a conscious extension of tradition. Esquivel never traveled outside of his native Spain, but his published polyphony based on Marian texts reveals that he was keenly aware of how Spaniards in other parts of the kingdom approached the composition of music for the Marian liturgy. Esquivel composed, however, for a Church that sought to replace regional traditions with a universal liturgy. In response, he successfully created liturgical music that adhered to the reformed texts while managing to retain the Spanish character of the polyphony by employing local chants as cantus firmi, following traditions of alternatim composition, and emulating traits of older Spanish masters. Esquivel's Marian motet cycle follows the post-Tridentine trend towards associating motets to specific feast days through the use of festal designations and carefully selected biblical and liturgical texts, but this same body of work also reveals his awareness of contemporary Mariological thought in Spain

Of priests, fiends, fops, and fools : John Bowman's song performances on the London stage, 1677-1701 by Matthew Aaron Roberson( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Referred to as Henry Purcell's "favorite baritone," the actor-singer John Bowman (ca. 1655-1739) became the leading baritone on the London stage during the last quarter of the seventeenth century. Centering on the career and song performances of Bowman, this dissertation provides a fresh perspective from which to view Restoration music theater, a reorientation that shifts the spotlight away from the works themselves -- the plays and their music -- and away from composers and playwrights, to one that focuses on performers and their concerns. The purpose of this work is to provide an account of the performance practice of Restoration theater song using Bowman as a case study. Bowman is an excellent subject for a case study for several reasons. He sang in Purcell's first stage commission and went on to sing many more songs by Purcell, as well as music by other significant composers of the era, including John Blow and John Eccles. As an actor, Bowman performed roles written by virtually every playwright of the late seventeenth century in England and worked with such actors as Thomas Betterton and Anne Bracegirdle. A desired outcome of this project is that singers wishing to cultivate their adeptness in historically informed performance of Restoration song will find this a helpful resource. To this end, Chapter II focuses wholly on performance practice in Restoration theater, covering both vocal production and acting, and concludes with a very detailed application of these to a song Bowman performed. This chapter also includes a guide outlining a practical approach for historically informed performance of Restoration theater song. As this guide shows, the initial step in the process, after having located the music, is to determine how each song fit into the larger dramatic context. Subsequent chapters are thus devoted principally to uncovering and reproducing all extant, unpublished songs Bowman performed, and to describing Bowman's characters and the contexts in which their song performances occurred

2 editions published in 2004 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This translation of the third volume of Syntagma musicum is part of a multi-volume work by German composer and theorist Michael Praetorius (1571-1621). Volume III deals with terminology and performance practice, and offers us the most detailed commentary available from the 17th century about the performance of particular pieces of music. For modern scholars, this third volume is the preeminent source of contemporary information on performance practice for the late Renaissance and early Baroque periods. Praetorius is the most often quoted and excerpted writer on performance practice. In his translation, Kite-Powell has worked with a notoriously difficult syntax to produce a definitive English edition of this important work
