Abstract"The Anatomy of Late 15th- and Early 16th-Century Iberian Polyphonic Music" project, directed at CESEM/FCSH, Lisbon Nova University, aims to describe the idiosyncrasies of the Iberian musical language, as well as reviewing the origin and circulation of repertories. Results have been varying; but there is a broad indication that by c.1500-20 many Spanish composers had developed fairly distinctive styles, although Northern influences may be detected. This panel explores the results of the research undertaken on sources (both musical and literary), and on various facets of musical language (both within the realms of sacred and secular music). Sources and the circulation of sacred music and compilation of repertories is the topic of the first paper, which looks at shedding further light on the origins of one of the most iconic Iberian manuscripts of sacred music from around 1500, Tarazona 2/3, through assessment of previously unexamined scribal details. In the second paper, the music of Pedro de Escobar (prominent in Tarazona 2/3) is used as a case study for reflecting on different approaches to composition and contrapuntal textures of the liturgical pieces especially, and how these choices were affected by genre expectations and texts being set. Consideration of text and word setting is also explored in the third paper on Iberian songs, where ‘villancicisms’ – rhetorical devices of word- and mood-painting, which preceded later Italian-style ‘madrigalisms’ – are highlighted. Finally, a more contextual approach to repertory circulation is taken in the fourth paper, which explores early 16th-century Portuguese literary sources for evidence of the circulation of Spanish songs in court circles.
