          Eighteenth-century Spanish music experienced a golden age thanks, especially, to the proliferation of centers such as the chapels, which articulated and structured the musical life of our cities: the main sound activity was centered on ecclesiastical music, both liturgical and paraliturgical, with which religious festivities were solemnized. Within this framework of creativity, the performance of chapel masters such as Ramón Garay stands out. The edition of his ecclesiastical music in Latin follows the scientific standards that a musicological research requires and the musical edition itself, of a critical nature, is very careful: in addition to the inclusion of incipits, it incorporates cards of each work in which the main aspects related to the sources and their transmission, the template, the formal structure, the critical notes or the edition of the Latin texts with their respective translations are made known. But its work is not limited to the transcription of the music: it also includes an extensive study on the state of the question, the objectives and methodology, as well as the historical musical context of Spain and Jaén in Garay's time, in addition to his biography and the study of his musical work.
