About

This is the world’s first recording of the Oficio de Difuntos (the Office of the Dead) by “el Españoleto”, one of the most important composers in the history of Spanish music before 1800, whose work enjoyed great prestige in his lifetime and was widely circulated in both Spain and Latin America.

This recording provides the first opportunity to hear the highly interesting Office of the Dead by one of the composers most in tune with international developments in the years leading up to the War of Independence. It provides evidence that Spain was not as musically isolated as others have claimed and that this composer from La Rioja, while still including late baroque and rococo elements, had completely assimilated the classical style without leaving aside the Spanish musical tradition.
