The chapelmaster at the parish church of Santa María in Briones (La Rioja), Lorenzo Mª de Polidura y Calderon, has works in Latin and Spanish kept at the parish archive, but apparently none in the polyphonic choirbooks. However, on fols. 16v-17 of E-BRI 50 there is an inscription in which Polidura is mentioned as a copyist of at least the Asperges by Manuel Rábago.

There is a discrepancy between Carreira and Camacho regarding the last date of activity for this composer; Carreira (p. 869) indicates 1888 and Camacho 1874 (p. 243), and thus we have indicated both dates.
