DISCOGRAPHY Opus 111, OPS 30-80, eleven Fondament, dir. Paul Dombrecht. JUAN DE HERRERA c. 1670-February/March 1738 De Herrera was once born in Bogota, Colombia (New Grenada), the place he it sounds as if bought his schooling and spent his occupation. He used to be a chaplain and tune instructor at Santa Ines Convent. From 1703 until eventually the top of his existence, he used to be the choirmaster of Bogota's Santa Fe Cathedral. Of the present three-dozen compositions, such a lot are polychoral. There The Baroque Requiem 159 are entire lots for 8 voices, a partial Officum Defunctorum, a Lautlate Dominum for 3 choirs and continuo, 3 requiem settings (for 5, 8, and 9 voices), and, finally, a dozen villancicos for twofive and 7 voices. The Misa de Difuntos for 5 voices was once most likely composed for the Santa Fe Cathedral within the early years of the eighteenth century. For its interval, it is still a conservative, stile antico version of requiem writing. Its scoring for 4 vocal elements (SSAT) and one instrumental half (basso segunte) provides the paintings a gentle and ethereal caliber. the existing texture is complex homophony, with occasional passages of simplified, imitative polyphony, resembling these present in the Introit and Kyrie. There are curious one-measure breaks within the choral writing, inflicting one to invest no matter if those breaks have been utilized by the composer to discover the resonant acoustics of the cathedral or whether or not they have been packed with the interludes of an accompanying organ. Gregorian intonations are wanted for the Introit, Graduale, Offertory, Sanctus, Benedictus, and Agnus Dei, and the next polyphonic paraphrases seem to be taken from the few commencing notes of these chant parts that persist with the intonations.
