Cristóbal de Morales (c.1500-1553)


Morales is arguably the first Spanish composer to achieve international fame and the most influential before Tomás Luis de Victoria. Between 1535 and 1545 he sang in with the choir of Sistine Chapel and a great number of his compositions were probably written for that ensemble. He later returned to his native Spain, serving as chapel master at the cathedrals in Toledo and finally Málaga. Even after his death, Morales was evidently still highly regarded and the Spanish theorist Juan Bermudo listed him alongside Adrian Willaert and Nicolas Gombert as a leading composer of the generation, and as the “light of Spain in music”.
