Fernando de las Infantas (1534-c. 1610): The Complete Motets. Motets for 4vv

We are glad to announce the first worldwide edition of the motets by the Spanish composer Fernando de las Infantas (1534-c. 1610). A noblesman born in Córdoba in 1534, Infantas was a theologist and a musician who lived in Rome since 1571 or 1572.

Infantas published three books of motets in Venice under the title Sacrarum varii styli cantionum. The first book (1578) contains 37 motets for four voices, the second (1578) has 30 motets for five voices, and the third (1579) has 21 motets from six to eight voices, making a total of 88 motets.

Infantas' motets are a fascinating mixture of the complexities of the Venetian composers like Zarlino and Willaert, and the expresiveness of the Spanish Renaissance composers like Victoria and Guerrero.

The first part of our edition of the Complete Motets by Fernando de las Infantas, containing 37 motets for four voices, is available right now. The second part, with the motets for five voices, will be published in February. The third part, with motets for six, seven and eight voices, will be published in March.
