The scholar and lutenist Alicia Lázaro, who has died of cancer, was responsible for recovering more than 4,500 ancient music manuscripts from the Cathedral of Segovia.

A youthful enthusiast for early music, she put on Spain’s first dedicated baroque concert series in café La Fídula on Calle Huertas in Madrid, which was owned by her brothers.

Alicia was a close collaborator of Jordi Savall and Monserrat Figueras.
