Spanish Catholic Choir Book

DATE
Year: 1774
Decade: 1770s
Century: 18th (1701-1800)

A manuscript book with music sheets of 1784, possibly coming from the Jesuit missions. It says “Francisco de Ollorio Capellano Metropolitan, the name of the Priest, the year and ciudade Civitatis. ” It is thus possible that the name of the city was Civitatis. The title-page says it was composed for “Hispalensis,” which is Seville, Spain in 1774.
