All the composers of the first half worked in Mexico in the Spanish tradition (Franco, Padilla and Dallo y Lana were born in Spain; Capillas was born in Mexico; de Lienas and pseudo-Franco were native Indians). The de Monte/Byrd pair are a linked setting of a psalm which describes exile in a strange land. My namesake was also exiled.
