Abstract: Las cofradías novohispanas del siglo XVIII eran particularmente sensibles a los fastos sonoros. Las campanas, la música, los cantos y los cohetes eran parte del culto a sus imágenes, y de sus símbolos corporativos. En la segunda mitad del siglo, la Corona y el episcopado, inspirados en una nueva sensibilidad, calificarán de desordenados, superfluos e incluso profanos algunos de esos sonidos, procurando reducirlos o eliminarlos para proteger el carácter religioso de esas corporaciones. Confraternities of New Spain were particularly sensitive for loud celebrations. The bells, music, songs and cohetes were part of the cult to their images and their corporate symbols. In the second half of the century, the Crown and the bishops, inspired by a new sensitivity, would deem disorderly, superfluous and even profane some of those sounds, seeking to suppress or eliminate them to protect the religious character of these corporations.
