Biography: 

The known works by Francisco de la Huerta are found in "papeles sueltos" (particelle) and not in choibooks. He has been incorporated to this database, since he was an important chapelmaster in different cathedrals and at the Monastery of Santa Ana in Ávila; he obviously had direct contact with the books of polyphony and with the performance of that repertory in the institutions where he worked.

The main part of the extant compositions by Huerta are preserved in the Pamplona Cathedral and in the Monastery of Santa Ana in Ávila, but there are also pieces by him preserved in the cathedrals of Ávila, Astorga (León), the Collegiate Church of San Miguel de Alfaro (La Rioja), the Royal Collegiate of Roncesvalles (Navarre), and the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial (Madrid).

Biography: 

El padre de Bernardino de Ribera, Pedro de Ribera, fue maestro de capilla en la Iglesia Colegial de Xàtiva/Játiva (lugar de nacimiento de Bernardino) y en las catedrales de Orihuela (donde Bernardino empezó su formación como infante) y Murcia. Bernardino probablemente fue maestro de capilla en la Catedral de Orihuela en 1556, antes de ocupar ese puesto en la Catedral de Ávila desde el 2 de junio de 1559; allí llegó procedente de Toro. Dimitió de su puesto en Ávila el 18 de noviembre de 1562 para ocupar la plaza de maestro de capilla en la Catedral de Toledo del 29 de febrero de 1563 hasta 1570 (el 6 de noviembre de 1570 el Cabildo volvió a llamar a Andrés de Torrentes).  Posteriormente Bernardino de Ribera fue maestro de capilla de la Catedral de Murcia entre 1571 y 1580, lo que retrasa la fecha de su muerte que hasta ahora se situaba alrededor de 1570.
