Iberian composer. In a document dated 1537 he is said to have been in the service of Toledo Cathedral for 62 years. If he entered the cathedral in 1475 it was probably as a choirboy. From June 1490 he was master of the choirboys (claustrero). In 1495 he succeeded in obtaining a prebend as a singer.
