Misc. Comments

  • According to the Wikipedia article, "La instrumentación exacta no ha sido encontrada en las partituras originales sobrevivientes de Torrejón y Velasco. Sin embargo, las partituras de otros obras musicales interpretadas en España a finales del siglo XVII sugieren que la instrumentación podría incluir arpas, guitarras, violas, violines, clarinetes y trompetas, tambores y castañuelas." (The exact instrumentation has not been found in the surviving original scores of Torrejó y Velasco. However, scores of other musical works performed in Spain in the late 17th century suggest that the instrumentation could include harps, guitars, viols, violins, clarinets, trumpets, drums and castanets.)
  • Comment about the Wikipedia instrumentation -- the clarinet may have been invented by the very end of the 17th century (1697 is one date that is given), but it was first developed in Nuremberg, and most certainly had not made it to Spain by the end of the 17th century.
