Lauda Música, which is based in Madrid, is the company that administrates the musical ensemble La Grande Chapelle and the Lauda record label, both of which were created with the aim of recovering and spreading Spanish musical heritage, mainly from the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries.
In just a few years they have won recognition at national and international level due to the artistic and musicological quality of their output and the painstaking care they devote to their recordings. Their select catalogue has become an essential reference point in the field of Spanish historical music performance.
Lauda Música collaborates with public entities (at state, regional, local and international level) and private institutions (foundations, companies and associations), with universities and research centres. It also has an agreement with the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) for the publication of the "Música Poetica" series.
Lauda Música promotes an ambitious project for the recovery of Spanish musical heritage, convinced that only innovation and multidisciplinary scientific collaboration will allow us to fill in the remaining gaps in our knowledge and to allow the Spanish repertoire to reach the same level as other European traditions.
La Grande Chapelle's musical recoveries are the result of a process that begins with rigorous scientific research and ends with concert performances and recordings. This groundbreaking methodology helps to spread the results of musicological research throughout society. It is this which has led the initiative to be identified as a paradigm of knowledge transfer in humanities and social sciences within the framework of the research project carried out in INGENIO (CSIC-UPV) (2005-2008).
