Tiento Lleno 2do Tono.

Juan Bautista José Cabanilles (1644 – 1712) was a Spanish organist and composer at Valencia Cathedral. He is considered by many to have been the greatest Spanish Baroque composer, and has been called the Spanish Bach.
See for more information one of my other Cabanilles uploads.

According to the title this Tiento should be played on an undivided manual. The way it should be played is suggested by the 2nd Tono, the second Modus.

Various interpretations of the "character" imparted by the different modes have been suggested. Two such interpretations, from Guido D'Arezzo (995-1050) and Adam of Fulda (1445-1505) are:
Guido of Arezzo (c. 990- 1050)
The second is sad.
Adam of Fulda (c.1445-1505)
The second is suitable for the sad things.

I tried to play it according to the instructions in the title and the piece itself in its writing suggests sadness as well as joy.

There is a definite difference im mood (imho) between the slow subdued movements in 4/4 and the parts in 3/8, which are rythmical and dansante.

Played on Organo Maior

The registration alternates between:

Flautat Maior 16', Flautat 8', Octava 4'
Flautat 8', Octava 4', Trompa Reial 8'
and (only last 3/8 movement)
Trompa Reial 8', Xirimia Alta 4'
