Sammanfattning: Cristobal de Morales was the most famous Spanish composer of the mid sixteenth century. His music was known internationally during his lifetime; he was eulogised in the works of contemporary writers; and his fame and influence remained significant in the seventeenth century: sixty years after his death, he was still regarded as one of the finest composers of sacred polyphony. His repertory includes some twenty-two masses and over 140 motets and works in other sacred genres. This volume seeks to examine all aspects of the composer's works, and the context in which he composed. The topics covered include sources, newly uncovered works and issues of authorship, musical traditions in Spain and elsewhere, the transmission and reception of Morales' music in Spain, Northern Europe and the New World, patterns of influence and emulation involving Morales and other composers, and modern perceptions of Morales and his music. The book also provides the first comprehensive published list of the composer's works and their sources. Owen Rees and Bernadette Nelson work at the University of Oxford. The contributors include: Cristle Collins Judd, Martin Ham, Tess Knighton, Kenneth Kreitner, Alison Sanders Mcfarland, Michael Noone, Bernadette Nelson, Owen Rees, Stephen Rice, Emilio Ros-Fabregas, Graeme Skinner, Robert Stevenson, Cristina Urcheguia, and Grayson Wagstaff
