(1644 - 1712)

Presumably a chorister at his native Algemesí and at Valencia Cathedral, Juan Bautista José Cabanilles was ordained priest and served as organist at the latter church from 1666 until his death in 1712. He was the greatest 17th-century Spanish organ master and represents a culmination of the tradition of organ music from Cabezón, his music widely known.

Organ Music

Cabanilles contributed to current keyboard forms with a large number of tientos, a smaller number of pieces derived from dances but presumably for church use, and two descriptive batallas (‘battles’).
