Description

The few available biographical data tell us that Francisco Correa de Arauxo (or de Acevedo) was born in Seville and baptized probably in September 1584. He was appointed organist of the Salvador, the second church in Seville, in 1599, and ordained priest probably in 1608. After several unsuccessful attempts to become organist of the Cathedral, he accepted an offer to take the main position at the Cathedral of Segovia and remained there until his death, in spite of invitations by the Chapter of Seville to return home and take the office he had always wanted. He is buried in the Cathedral of Segovia.
Not unlike J.S. Bach, Correa gives the image of an artist inbetween times, with one foot in tradition and establishment, and the other in revolution and novity. We must recognize the amazing beauty and genius of his music, a genius which sets him apart from all other Spanish, just as Frescobaldi from all other Italians, Grigny from all other French and Bach from all other German composers of their times.
The Facultad Organica was published in 1626. This new Urtext edition, edited by Guy Bovet, is based on the Brussels copy; doubtful passages have been compared with the two copies of the Madrid Biblioteca Nacional.

Reviews

Le Magazine de l'orgue - No. 91
... Si vous ne l'avez pas déjà fait, je vous recommande de lire la présentation ci-dessus de l'édition concurrente, car les problèmes rencontrés par les deux transcripteurs sont les mêmes, mais les solutions adoptées diffèrent sensiblement. La différence saute déjà à l'oeil, au premier regard. Si l'édition espagnole marquait un progrès par rapport à celle de Kastner, on fait ici un second aérées, texte bien large, notes suffisamment grandes, indications "accessoires" suffisamment petites procurent un réel plaisir à la lecture de cette partition. On est également reconnaissant à l'éditeur d'avoir regroupé avant chaque pièce, non seulement le texte introductif de Correa et sa traduction anglaise, généralement commentée, mais aussi les notes, ce qui évite le fastidieux retour à l'arrière du volume, pour consulter l'appareil critique....
Très appréciable est le choix fait par Guy Bovet de transcrire cette partition d'abord pour des interprètes, et non pour des musicologues ... (Jean Ferrard)
