A musical printer in Astorga

Between the years 1922 and 1950 the city of Astorga had one of the three only musical printers that worked in Spain during that time. In the printer, directed by Ángel Julián Rubio, musical texts were transcribed by hand into a special paper that after was passed to a lithographic stone to reproduce the copied texts in series with the help of a hand press. From the printer were obtained numerous scores and librettos of zarzuela, modern music of the time and music for the militia, National Radio, hymns, popular songs or request of composers of the moment, as well as music to accompany film screenings.
