Josep Pons: Mass of Sant Narcís: Deus tuorum militum (1792)

The very solemn consecration of the chapel of Sant Narcís in the basilica of Sant Feliú in 1792 was the culmination of a long process. Bishop Lorenzana, its promoter, wanted a chapel that was made with all kinds of architectural luxuries. The mass that we presented was one of the important acts in the three days that this consecration lasted. It is a work for two choirs and a chamber orchestra with an operatic style unknown at that time in the city.

  At the celebration of the V conference dedicated to the history of Girona, held in October 2015 within the context of the millennium of St. Daniel of Girona's abbey, one of the lectures was centred on the music used in the convents then and which has survived until the present day.
  This short cycle of lectures-concerts is an amplification open to the general public and which aims to stimulate interest in this very important part of the history of our city as are the convents that have existed here. The music that has been preseved allows a new and pleasant approach to a complex reality that has hardly been researched.

Requiem by Juncà.
Bishop Palmero died in March 1774, three months after Francis Juncà acceded by means of a competitive exam to the title of Kapellmeister in January of the same year. When
the new master entered, Gònima retired. However, both collaborated in the funeral music for the dead bishop. Juncà composed and signed the main part, the Requiem, and Gònima wrote, but did not sign, the antiphon of the acquitted "Libera me", a Gregorian antiphon which is still sung at the end of the Requiem Mass, beginning when the procession take the body of the deceased to the grave. He did not sign the score because he was already retired so he could not appear as the author. As the bishop was buried in the cathedral, the procession would be short but the "Libera me" had to last long enough to allow them to get the coffin to its tomb in the cathedral. In the Requiem there are parts that are deliberately omitted from the score: the canons also had to sing part of the Requiem Mass in Gregorian but, not figuratively as was the case with chapel music song. Thus, all the strata of the cathedral clergy participated in the funeral mass.
