  • Esteban Salas (Esteban Salas y Castro) (1725-1803) is considered as the most representative pioneer and author of the Latin American baroque. He studies the violin, organ, counterpoint, composition and plain singing (he is a soprano) in Havana.
  • At fifteen, he entered the seminary and completed his training by studying philosophy, theology and canon law. He arrived in Santiago de Cuba in 1764, appointed interim chapel master of the cathedral by Bishop Pedro Morell de Santa Cruz, the island's first historiographer. Salas will stay for almost forty years in the capital of the province of Oriente. Esteban Salas was ordained a priest in 1790 at the age of 64. He died in Santiago de Cuba on July 14, 1803. 
  • Mainly vocal, the music of Esteban Salas is representative of late Baroque. Although largely influenced by French and Italian music of this period, this style nevertheless incorporates elements specific to Latin America and the Spanish Antilles. • Among the compositions of the Cuban musician, there are seven masses, many motets, psalms, hymns and arias, as well as cantatas, pastoral and the traditional “villancicos” of Christmas. These remain among the most played pieces even today 'hui: "Qué niño tan bello", "Como luz ha nacido" (1798), "Unos pastores" (1793) Qué dulce melodía (1800) and sacred songs like O! admirable sacramento, Jubilate Deo and Ave Maris Stella.
  • Played until the end of the 19th century, his works enjoyed renewed interest in the 20th century in the 1940s, following the rediscovery of several scores by the Cuban writer and musicologist Alejo Carpentier.
  • The motet O Admirable Sacramento can be sung either by a mixed choir or by two soloists. It is organized in 3 parts A-B-C (the 3rd being the resumption of the first). Traditionally, each verse is concluded with an Amen.
  • Two texts exist for the central part B. It is possible to sing one or the other, or even one and the other (by taking twice part B). Traditionally, each verse is concluded with an Amen.
