Cuadernos de Bellas Artes, CBA58: “A master of the 19th century Chapel in Valencian lands: Francisco Andreví Castellá (1786-1853)”

Author: Vicente Martínez Molés – Prologue of Magín Arroyas Serrano

ISBN – 13: 978-84-16458-71-4 Distribute: F. Drago

This book has just been published in which reference is made to Francisco Andreví Castellá, a nineteenth-century Spanish musician who developed an important activity as a Chapel Master in some of the most important cathedrals, both in our country and also in France. Among the various destinations he occupied throughout his life, we find his presence in Valencian lands through two stages. The first in Segorbe between 1808 and 1814, and the second in Valencia between 1819 and 1830, which were decisive for the definitive impulse of two musical chapels. However, the ignorance of his true professional career has overshadowed in many cases, and for centuries, part of the history that surrounded both the religious music of this period in general, and the character in particular, something that has been tried to show this post.
