A. de Salazar
Antonio de Salazar (ca.1650 - 27/05/1715), a Mexican composer. He was born in Spain, but later moved to Mexico and became one of the most famous Mexican composers. He was chapel master of Puebla Cathedral and later at the Mexico City Cathedral; it is unknown if he ever was at Oaxaca, though some of his music survives in manuscripts of the Oaxaca Cathedral. He was a great master of contrapuntal technique, unifying his works with recurring motives rather than with imitation. His style is unusually conservative, with subtle contrast, very few touches of word painting, and transparent textures with broad phrases and even, rhythmic flow.
