Little is well known concerning this Mexican composer who was simply probably given birth to in Spain. The just functions he was recognized to possess composed are actually within manuscripts in the Convento del Carmen as well as the Newberry Choirbooks, Chicago. Inside the colonial repertoire, Lienas’ compositions had been outstanding. Musical lines had been facile and sonorous providing light to lucid dispositions. Melodic parroting and counterpoint had been quickly contended with by Lineas.
