Resumen: The Mendoza family constitutes one of the most significant examples in the patronage of the arts in Spain during the Renaissance. The inventory of holdings made in 1560 after the death of Don Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, Count of Saldaña and Third Marquis of Cenete, reveals a rich collection of musical instruments including a menestrila —or chest of wind instruments—. According to the records, this Spanish poet and diplomat apparently enjoyed the music of high wind instruments in his palace. This might explain why, in addition to cornetts, sackbuts and curtals, this chest contained a similarly large number of flutes and recorders (“6 flautas en una caja con llave, 11 flautas grandes y pequeñas, una caja con siete pífanos pequeños y grandes, y una flauta de madera cubierta de cuero”) which suggests a regular practice of consort playing with instruments of the same family in the rooms of his palace. A few years later, in 1564, we find, among the possesions of Íñigo López de Mendoza, Fourth Duke of the Infantado, a no less rich collection of musical instruments, with an unusual variety of members of the flute family: “7 flautas 'de flandes', 1 zabeva, 1 pifaro de hueso con dos cabezas y 2 flautas unidas”. The diversity of terms used referring to the different types of flutes in both inventories gives rise to several questions about the characteristics of the instruments listed: who made them, who played them, in which combinations, for what events were they used, and what kind of music did they perform?. In the present lecture I will suggest some possible answers.
