JUAN GARCÍA DE SALAZAR (1639-1710): Officium et Missa pro Defunctis.
Catalogue Number: 06L017
Description: In many Spanish cathedrals in the 17th century, funeral masses used the the Missa pro defunctis by Francisco Guerrero. Over a period of years while at his long-time post in Zamora, Salazar gradually composed his own funeral service, in pieces, stylistically indebted to the great Spanish polyphonists of the 17th century yet also with a baroque expressiveness and rhetorical quality, and the whole is recorded here.
