Abstract:Manuel Rodrigues Coelho's Flores de musica (1620) holds a particularly important place in the history of Iberian keyboard music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. As the first printed source of instrumental music in Portugal and one of the largest collections to be produced on the Iberian peninsula during the period, Flores de musica marks a turning point in musical style between late Renaissance and early Baroque practices, especially in the tentos, which form a link in the evolution of the Spanish tiento, beginning with those of Mudarra and Cabezon and culminating in the works of Correa and Cabanilles. This study of Flores de musica (1) provides the first complete English translation of Coelho's Foreword and Specific Instructions, (2) identifies a number of stylistic influences absorbed from contemporary musicians from elsewhere on the European continent, (3) analyzes selected tentos in light of then-current ideas about tonal and rhythmic organization, and most importantly, (4) provides the reader with a sufficient amount of information on performance practice techniques, both musical and liturgical, so that the pieces contained in Flores de musica may be rendered as authentically as possible on modern instruments.
