How Music can dominate Space. The Patronage of Music by Religious Orders in 16th- and 17th-century Palermo.


According to the models of the so-called "Urban Musicology", the aim of this paper is to summarize the musical activity promoted by monastic churches between the Renaissance and the Baroque – in particular by the Jesuits – and, by examining data, to reconstruct the musical employees who probably existed in Palermo institutions, financial support for liturgical music and the multiple connections between music, power and social environment.
