Various authors - Secular cantatas Vol. 1
84 pages. ISMN 979-0-805412-69-6 (PDF)
Also available in paperback edition
In this collection we publish a selection of cantadas humanas (secular cantatas) preserved in various archives and libraries. This first volume includes two cantatas by Lorenzo Romero, a barely known musician who worked in Madrid during the second decade of the 18th-century, two cantatas by Juan de Serqueira, a musician active in theater companies, three cantatas by José de Torres, organist and chapel master of the Royal Chapel and, finally, a cantata by Francisco Valls, chapel master of the Cathedral of Barcelona. The theme of these cantatas is mostly amorous. The texts are usually complaints about infidelity, disdain or absence of a lover. The setting is often pastoral, which is in line with the ideals of the Academy of Arcadia.
