Elisabeth Wright Highlights A Valencian Organist

Not many people know the name Juan Cabanilles: even today, we don’t know much more about him than his birth and death dates, and his life-long position as organist at the Valencia Cathedral. But his fame lies in his enormous output of over 800 pieces annotated by one of his students, Joseph Elias. Although Cabanilles seems to have never left Spain, his music survives in manuscripts all over Europe, a testament to the popularity of both him and his music.
