Cuban Sacred Music from the 18th Century

Presented by Miriam Escudero
Part of the HPI Colloquium Series

Monday, March 19 • 4:05 PM
(Facebook Event Page


Esteban Salas and Cayetano Pagueras are the most outstanding musicians of the eighteenth Century in Cuba, the earliest composers whose handwritten scores are preserved in Cuba, and their work is considered an important exponent of Latin American Late Baroque and Classic music. Salas and Pagueras developed an intense musical activity that included the creation of compositions between liturgical works and villancicos. Specifically, the Christmas repertoire Salas composed, exhibits theater elements, possibly influenced by the tonadilla—as corroborated by research—and ballroom dancing, both evidence of the exchange that took place between its creation and Cuban soundscape of the century of lights.


Recognized as one of Cuba’s leading musicologists, Miriam Escudero is Director of the “Esteban Salas” Musical Heritage Cabinet of the Havana City Historian Office. She is also Professor at Colegio Universitario San Gerónim, where she coordinates graduate studies in musical heritage preservation, and at The University of Arts of Cuba (ISA).
