GUERRA ROJAS, Cristián. Religious musical Works by Vicente Bianchi Alarcón. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2017, vol.71, n.228, pp.29-48. ISSN 0716-2790.

A first approach to religious musical output of Chilean composer Vicente Bianchi Alarcon (b. 1920), National Prize of Musical Arts 2016 in Chile, is exposed in this paper. A background to understand this output is presented as two great items can be distinguished: Christmas music and liturgical music. Then works from each of these items are presented and later an approach to meaningful stylistic features that can be observed in this corpus. Finally some prospects from musical, theological and socioaesthetic viewpoints are proposed about this output.

Keywords : Vicente Bianchi; religious music; Christmas music; liturgical music; 2nd Vatican Council.
