Alonso Lobo
Birth: Feb. 25, 1555
Death: Apr. 5, 1617

Composer. A leading Spanish musician of the Renaissance, noted for the somber intensity of his sacred compositions. He was highly regarded by his more famous contemporaries, Francisco Guerrero and Tomas Luis de Victoria, and throughout the 17th Century his music was performed in Mexico and Latin America as well as in his homeland. Lobo was born in Osuna, Spain, and attended the university there. After several minor positions he served as Choirmaster of Toledo Cathedral from 1593 to 1603, and of Seville Cathedral from 1603 until his death. In 1602 he selected what he considered his best work - six Masses and seven motets - for publication in the volume "Liber primus missarum Alphonsi Lobo de Borja". These included the powerful "Versa est in luctum" (1598), written for the funeral of King Philip II, and the glowing "Missa Maria Magdalene" and "Ave Maria". A good deal more of Lobo's music exists in manuscript. It has enjoyed renewed favor since the 1980s, when Early Music ensembles such as the Tallis Scholars began featuring it in their repertories and recordings. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
