Ms. scores of liturgical music--antiphons, masses, requiems, lamentations, passions, and offices--transcribed by at least 20 different scribes for use by the nuns of the Convento de la Encarnacio?n in Mexico City, probably between 1600 and 1799. The scores contain the sacred music of Spanish masters such as Guerrero, Morales, and Victoria; as well as Mexican composers of the late 16th-early 18th centuries such as Franco, Lienas, Ximeno, and Zumaya. Scores of v. 1 and 4 are written in the older style; while v. 2-3 and 5-6 include polychoral works in the "stile concitato." Layout suggests that there were once 2 other v. in the set (cf. Schleifer).
