To be distinguished from Juan García de Salazar (1639-1710) Spanish composer.Antonio de Salazar (c.1650–1715) was a Mexican composer.Salazar was born in Seville, Spain. He arrived in New Spain in 1688 as chapel master of Puebla Cathedral, then later held his final position at Mexico City Cathedral. It is unknown if he had any direct connection to Oaxaca Cathedral though some of his compositions are found in manuscript there. He died in Mexico City, Mexico.In his sacred Latin works Salazar was noted for a strict contrapuntal style harking back to Palestrina. The musicologist Bruno Turner considers that Salazar "represents the last of the truly conservative Hispanic composers before the all-conquering Italian style took Spain and its Empire by storm".Salazar also composed lighter pieces including Christmas villancicos, including several in the negrillo genre imitating the dialects and dances of African slaves.
