Fiestas de beatificación
This paper aims to analyze the different strategies developed by convents to participate, through music, in extraordinary festivities celebrated in their urban surroundings, overcoming the spatial limitations of the cloister. Starting with the dichotomy between inside and outside, this paper studies conventual musical practices that went beyond the limits of the convent on the occasion of feasts of beatification, through several case studies which include female and male conventual institutions located in cities of the Hispanic world around 1600. These convents drew on sounds not only to express their joy, infect others with the festive spirit, attract the masses and transmit religious beliefs, but also to differentiate themselves from the rest of the institutions in the city. It focuses on the status of those particular convents in the urban hierarchy.
