Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gines Perez was born in Orihuela, Kingdom of Valencia. Supposedly brought up in the school of boy singers in his home town, his precocious talent was so outstanding that, at the age of fourteen, after a competitive exam, he was appointed master of the newly created musical chapel of Orihuelaís Cathedral. On the 13th of February, 1581, he was appointed choir master of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Valencia, at that time the most important position on the Iberian Mediterranean coast. His lack of regularity about the execution of his duties so provoked his superiors that, in November, 1595, the Chapter declared his position vacant. Perez then returned permanently to Orihuela to occupy the post of Royal Canon, a fact that proves the high esteem Read more in which he was held in the Court of Felipe II. His extant works, known at the present time, are small, approximately 50 liturgical, polyphonic works, that are spread all around different Spanish cathedral archives. The major portion of the music contained on this CD is devoted to Perezís music for the Office of the Dead, which is the most complete cycle of pieces by the composer. Besides this major work, there are three other compositions; a Salve Regina, and two motets which are included at the beginning of the disc with the intention of demonstrating the composerís ability as a contrapuntalist.
