Manuel Rodrigues Coelho (ca. 1555 – 1635) was a Portuguese organist and composer. He is the first important Iberian keyboard composer since Cabezón. Coelho was born in Elvas around 1555 and probably received early education at the Elvas Cathedral. He may also have studied at the Badajoz Cathedral, where he worked as organist from 1573 to 1577. At some point during the 1580s Coelho returned to Elvas and worked at the cathedral there. He left the post in 1602 after becoming court organist at Lisbon. He died in 1635, probably in Lisbon.

  • Manuel Rodrigues Coelho (c.1555-1635) fue un organista y compositor portugués del período Barroco. Luego de trabajar en las catedrales de Badajoz y Elvas, en 1603 fue nombrado organista de la catedral de Lisboa y miembro de la capilla real. Se le considera el primer compositor de teclado de relevancia en la Península ibérica luego de Cabezón, por sus tientos escritos en un estilo barroco muy vivaz, donde predomina el brillo sobre el desarrollo temático.

  • Manuel Rodrigues Coelho (vers 1555 - vers 1635) fut un compositeur, organiste et claveciniste portugais. Formé à la cathédrale d'Elvas, il travailla ensuite à la cathédrale de Badajoz puis à celle de Lisbonne à partir de 1603. Il fut également nommé à la chapelle royale en 1633. Son œuvre complète, intitulée Flores de Música para instrumento de tecla e harpa fut éditée en 1620. Elle comprend 2 parties : * Livro de tentos : 24 tentos, soit 3 dans chacun des 8 modes ecclésiastiques, et 4 "Susannas grosadas" ; * Composições sobre temas litúrgicos : * 4 Pange lingua, * 9 Ave maris stella, * 23 Magnificat dans les 8 modes, * 34 psaumes dans les 8 modes, * 35 Kyrie Note : « tento » est la forme portugaise de « tiento » L'œuvre de Coelho est marquée plus par la brillance de la figuration ornementale que par le développement thématique ; elle se caractérise aussi par l'irrégularité, très hispanique, des rythmes, l'emploi des quintes ou quartes diminuées ou augmentées, une structure agréable.

  • Manuel Rodrigues Coelho (ca. 1555 – 1635) was a Portuguese organist and composer. He is the first important Iberian keyboard composer since Cabezón. Coelho was born in Elvas around 1555 and probably received early education at the Elvas Cathedral. He may also have studied at the Badajoz Cathedral, where he worked as organist from 1573 to 1577. At some point during the 1580s Coelho returned to Elvas and worked at the cathedral there. He left the post in 1602 after becoming court organist at Lisbon. He died in 1635, probably in Lisbon. The composer's surviving works are preserved in a 1620 print Flores de musica pera o instrumento de tecla & harpa, published in Lisbon. The collection, dedicated to Philip II of Portugal, is the earliest surviving Portuguese keyboard print. It contains 24 tientos, 101 liturgical organ versets (kyries and hymn settings), four settings of the Spanish/Mozarabic version of Pange lingua, and four intabulations of Lassus' Susanne ung jour. This large collection is probably a compilation of earlier composed material. Coelho's most important compositions are his tientos, which are very long (200–300 bars on average), multi-sectional pieces. Imitative counterpoint has a secondary role in them, whereas motivic figures and figuration, hallmarks of the Baroque style, are in the foreground. The harmonic language is simple and clear in sharp contrast to the contemporary Italian composers (i.e., Ascanio Mayone, Giovanni Maria Trabaci and Girolamo Frescobaldi); the contrapuntal techniques are reminiscent of Sweelinck. Coelho's liturgical pieces are less ornate, and generally employ more strict counterpoint. They include a group of 23 versets para se cantarem ao órgâo, "for singing to the organ", which all consist of a vocal line with organ accompaniment. (en)
