Antonio de Salazar

born: c1650
died: 25 March 1715
country: Mexico

Antonio de Salazar represents the last of the truly conservative Hispanic composers before the all-conquering Italian style took Spain and its Empire by storm. Salazar came to New Spain directly to the maestro’s post at Puebla and from 1688 held his final position at the Cathedral in Mexico City. He was famous for his villancicos, some of which had texts by the great Mexican writer and poetess Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. Salazar’s O sacrum convivium deserves regular use in our church services.
