Joan Cererols

(1618 -1676)

Catalan composer. His entire life was devoted to the Montserrat Monastery near Barcelona -- during the 1620s and early 1630s he was a chorister, and in 1636 he became a novice. Later, as a monk, he studied Latin and theology, and for forty years he directed the musical activities at the monastery. His extant works include three Masses, eleven Psalm settings, hymns, canticles, and secular villancicos.
