Padre Antonio Soler and his six quintets.

This paper is a general study of the quintets of Padre Antonio Soler. It briefly surveys the material itself: its instrumentation, its technical aspects, and its form. The paper further attempts to relate the quintets to the period in music history in which they were written, and to relate them to other similar organ works. It is hoped that through this study, the reader will become acquainted with the composer and his music and will turn to other Soler compositions.
