(1561 - 1627)

A native of Saragossa, Sebastián Aguilera de Heredia, a priest and organist, spent many years in the service of the Cathedral of La Seo in Saragossa. He contributed notably to the tradition of Spanish organ music of his time and also left 36 settings of the Magnificat, exploring the eight ecclesiastical modes in choral settings for various numbers of voices.

Organ Music

The organ music left by Aguilera de Heredia includes several pieces under the title of tiento, the Spanish equivalent of the Italian ricercare, originally an introductory instrumental ‘try-out’.
