The music of the Office of the dead offered on the recording of Ars Harmonica is almost completely new in the disc world, and it consists in the complete collection of five vesper psalms with its own "Magnificat" and verse "Requiescant in pace", besides the first lesson "Parce mihi Domine" and two funeral motets of the author. All this music is preserved in the Valencia’s Cathedral, and also in other archives, having been published in 1896 by Felip Pedrell. In addition, inserted between the psalms have been included two funeral motets of Ambrosio Cotes (1550?-1603) –successor of Pérez in the Valencia’s cathedral- and Joan Baptista Comes (1582?-1643) –probable pupil and later chapel master of the Cathedral- and also a "Tiento de falsas" of Sebastián Aguilera de Heredia (1561-1627), a contemporary of Pérez.
