The manuscript P-Pm MM-42 (olim Ms. 1577), with organ tablatures (same system used by Venegas de Henestrosa, Hernando de Cabezón and Correa de Araujo), contains the only four works known by this organist/composer: two are titled Obra and the other two Registro. According to Preciado (1999-2002), p. 715, the obras are "llenos para órgano" and the registros are "registros partidos de mano derecha (de uno y dos tiples, espectivamente)"; the four works are like tientos. He points out: "Es notable la Obra de 5º tono, porque en su segunda mitad introduce el autor un motivo de jota riojana, que le confiere un aire de fiesta popular. Antonio Brocarte aclara el estilo organístico español de su tiempo, haciéndolo menos farragoso y más transparente".

Biography: 

According to López-Calo (1999-2002), p. 439, Francisco García de Córdoba is the composer of two extant motets and five villancicos in "papeles sueltos". The motets are at Santo Domingo de la Calzada (see López-Calo,1988), p. 30, and the villancicos in Barcelona, Segovia and Zaragoza. López-Calo, following Donostia (1955), states that García de Córdoba became chapelmaster at Tolosa's church of Santa María ca. 1665, but Donostia (1955), p. 134, was referring to 1667, the date in which the previous chapelmaster finished his service between 1665 and 1667.

References: 

A hitherto unnoticed, faint inscription in E-TZ 04 (upper margin of fol. 17) mentions Francisco García de Córdoba as chapelmaster when he was in Tarazona (after 1688): "... año...96 a 29 de deciembre... siendo Maestro de capilla / el Sr. Dn. Fran[cis]co Garzia de cordoba y &c". The inscription appears in the opening of Melchor Robledo's Agnus Dei of his Missa De beata virgine Rex regum. This inscription indicates that the manuscript was being used by García de Córdoba (and in particular this mass by Robledo) at least a century after the date in which it was copied.

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).
