Anyone know of any? Maybe scores left behind in Catholic/Jesuit archives?

The only ones I've encountered so far are some pieces by Pedrini and Amiot (aside from some speculative reconstructions of music that could have been performed in the Jesuit churches of Beijing, and some records of performances of Rameau given at the Qing court)

Would be so interested to hear or browse through scores of Western-style music written or performed in the Spanish colonial Philippines, in Macau, or in the Jesuit missions in Nagasaki, etc.

How far west are you willing to carry the question? Would Western-style music in the Ottoman Empire interest you?

To some extent, actually, during those centuries, Western-style music would be rather exotic even in Russia.
