Music In The Zarzuelas Of Severino Reyes
Severino Reyes (1861–1942), writer and dramatist, wrote the libretto to a total of twenty zarzuelas in which he worked closely with composers ranging from Fulgencio Tolentino (1870–1940) to Antonio Molina (1894–1980). Unfortunately, only eleven of these works have extant music today. Nevertheless, they present a good cross section of musical theory and practice in the Philippines early in the twentieth century. The author also includes reproductions of original zarzuela compositions as found in the appendix, and recommends their possible revival today even as individual compositions.
