The Jeronymite monks of El Escorial mainly performed plainchant themselves, but Noone discusses an anonymous polyphonic Requiem setting possibly composed by one of the monks; royal chapel musicians, furthermore, were on hand for the processions and other ceremonies accompanying the reburials of royal corpses that commenced in 1573.
Attempts to establish her legitimacy were still at stake and performed against the backdrop of the ongoing civil war that followed Enrique's death in 1475 when Isabel requested that the Jeronymite prior of the monastery of Santa Maria del Prado in Valladolid, Hernando de Talavera, [20] make a copy of his sermon preached to the monks at Santa Maria during the Advent season.
In each of these nine sections Talavera first outlined why these were desirable characteristics for religious to emulate (the sermon had first been preached to the Jeronymite monks of Santa Mar[acute{i}]a del Prado).
One would love, for example, to be in a position - surviving material permitting - to make such comparisons with another great Jeronymite monastery, that at Belem near Lisbon, which like the Escorial was a dynastic mausoleum; and other intriguing comparisons and contrasts spring to my mind through my work and that of Ernesto Goncalves de Pinho on the "Royal Monastery" of Santa Cruz in Coimbra, where Portugal's first kings are buried, and which - like the Escorial - enjoyed extensive royal patronage in both its monastic and prominent educational roles.
