Real Fundación Toledo and Toledo cathedral (Spain)

The International Music Festival “El Greco en Toledo” promoted by the Real
Fundación Toledo and Toledo cathedral organize a Symposium of Musicology
entitled “Cardinal Cisneros and Music”, next 27th to 29th September. The
director is José María Domínguez (University of La Rioja) and Tess Knighton
is in charge of the scientific organization. Major scholars on Music,
History, Printing and Culture of the Spanish Renaissance will meet to
present recent research and discuss on Music around cardinal Francisco
Jiménez de Cisneros (1436-1517). The event features kenotes by Professors
Susan Boynton (Columbia University) and Juan Carlos Asensio (ESMUC –
Barcelona). Six sessions and a round table will conform the program,
focusing on issues as: Mozarabic chant, choirbooks and liturgical imprints,
material culture and musical patronage by archbishops, religious orders and
reformism and, finally, Toledo cathedral at the time of the Cardinal. The
Symposium will be held in historical venues related to Cisneros: the
Cathedral, Lorenzana palace, the Conservatorio (former monastery of San
Juan de la Penitencia founded by the prelate) and the mozarabic church of
Santa Eulalia where a mozarabic sung mass is scheduled. A closing concert
by Schola Antiqua will take place in the cathedral. The language of the
Symposium will be Spanish.
