Playing in the Cathedral

Given that approaches toward the study of New Spanish music culture have changed considerably since the 1930s (when Gabriel Saldívar’s book Historia de la música en México first appeared), it seemed appropriate to get a historiographic glimpse of literature pertinent to this field. While some of the scholarship addressed in this chapter does not deal necessarily with New Spain, it is still worth mentioning because its view of colonial music history resonates with narratives that have focused on this area. The chapter closes by addressing how the present book contributes to recent work in the field of colonial music studies, with a particular emphasis on New Spain.
