Abstract

An in-depth study of the cathedral's function and its liturgy is essential for evaluating the cathedral's acoustic conditions from a historical point of view. In most cases, ceremonials, missals, books of anniversaries, processionals, choirbooks, chapter acts, etc. clearly outline the exact position, movement, order, sound level, type of message, and recipient of the sound emission of each of the participating actors. With the information provided by original documents, we apply a virtual acoustic simulation model, validated with measurements made on site, to reconstruct the acoustic conditions of a conventual mass in the Cathedral of Toledo in 1549. With the model, we obtain results for the most relevant acoustic properties in this type of space. Then, with a geographic information system (GIS), we use the data to represent on an acoustic map the relation and fit between the acoustic values and the spatial and usage conditions of the solemn liturgy.
