An inscription in the book of polyphony 6 at Palencia cathedral (E-PAL 6) with works by Joaquín Martínez de la Roca Bolea (ca. 1676-ca. 1756) identifies the copyist as follows: "Siendo Fabriquero de esta / Sta.

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).

Nationality: 
Periods of service: 
1529-1536 Catedral de Santiago de Compostela, maestro de capilla
1541-1551 Catedral de Palencia, maestro de capilla
Biography: 

As pointed out by José López-Calo and Cristina Diego Pacheco, documents related to the brothers Alonso, Pedro and Rodrigo Ordóñez often do not mention the first name, and thus it is difficult sometimes to ascertain their identity. In E-V 05 there are four polyphonic works attributed to Alonso Ordóñez and one to "Rº Ordóñez"; although the initial in the latter ascription has been interpreted as "Racionero" (to refer to Alonso Ordóñez), it is most likely that it refers to Rodrigo Ordóñez. There are no known works attributed to Pedro Ordóñez.

References: 

See Cristina Diego Pacheco's discussion of Alonso Ordóñez's works in E-V 5, of the 'Kyries de Cuaresma y el himno Vexilla regis' possibly by Alonso Ordoñez in Santiago de Compostela; she also mentions a lost Salve Regina attributed to Ordóñez in Tarazona inventories.

There are no known works attributed to Pedro Ordóñez.

Regarding Pedro Ordóñez, singer in the Papal Chapel, it should be pointed out (as mentioned by Lopez-Calo), that Haberl stated (based on the Chapel's diaries) that Pedro Ordóñez died in Rome between 17 and 27 November 1549. However, presumably Pedro Ordóñez was named chapelmaster at Palencia Cathedral in 1551 and continued there until his death in 1585. A 1578 document at Palencia cathedral, though, indicates that Ordóñez had been there during forty years, but in 1538 he would have been in Rome, and thus this Ordóñez chapelmaster could be a different person than the Pedro Ordóñez in the Papal Chapel.

until 1584 (V-12) Colegiata de Antequera (organist)
after 1584 (V-12) Catedral de Palencia (organist)
Biography: 

There are two vihuela works (Seis diferencias de bacas and Seis diferencias sobre bacas) attributed to Francisco Páez in the collection Ramillete de flores (1593), but, as pointed out by John Griffiths, there is no biographical information about this vihuelist/composer.

At the Institución Milá y Fontanals, CSIC, in Barcelona, a card catalog includes the following handwritten, unpublished, entry: "Paez de Salcedo, Francisco. s. XVI. En marzo de 1584 solicita la plaza de organista de la catedral de Palencia. Era organista de Antequera. En los primeros días de mayo 12 de dicho año el cabildo de Palencia le dio posesión del órgano. Documentación de S[antiago] Kastner." Perhaps this Francisco Paez de Salcedo, organist in Antequera (Málaga) first, and in Palencia, starting in 1584, is the same Francisco Páez of the Ramillete de flores.
