Acording to Garbayo (1999-2002), p. 400: "Se desconoce prácticamente todo lo que se refiere a su vida.... En opinión de Eslava, que transmite Barbieri, siendo aún joven fue MC en la colegial del Salvador en Sevilla, y por entonces puso música a algunos romances viejos que se han conservado en libros de vihuela, que aprovechó Miguel de Fuenllana en su Orphénica lira (1554), sin que llegase hasta hoy nada de música religiosa a excepción de un motete que existe en El Escorial, publicado por Eslava en su Lira Sacro Hispana. Sin embargo, Pena y Anglés dan noticia de dos himnos conservados en Toledo, además de una misa, un motete y una pasión guardados en la biblioteca de Medinaceli". The list of works provided by Garbayo contains the following works: "Himnos: Qui Paraclitus diceris, E-Tc; Veni Creator, E-Tc. Motetes: Ave sanctissimum, 4V, E-E; Domine, memento mei, E-Mmc; Madrigales: Navego en hondo mar enbravecido, 4V. Varia: Misa, E-Mmc; Passio, E-Mmc".

RISM attributes the work by Bernal in the Orphenica lyra (1554) to the theorist Afonso Perea Bernal (b. Seville?-d. Coimbra, 1593), but it is most likely that the polyphonic works are by the composer (of uncertain first name) Francisco? / José? Bernal González. According to Stevenson, "Bernal, Afonso Perea", Grove Music Online, the Ave sanctissimum once attributed to "A. Bernal" is by José Bernal Gonçález; in the latter's entry in Grove Music Online, Stevenson attributes to him all the works ascribed to "Bernal" or "Bernal Gonçalez".

He was maybe a singer ("mozo de coro") in the Cathedral of Segovia (1578-1579). In 1591 he was chapelmaster in Trujillo (Cáceres) and went to León to participate in the exams ("oposiciones") for the position of chapelmaster of the León Cathedral. Marcos Esteban de Castro was chapelmaster at Ávila Cathedral from December 1603 onwards; he was still working there in 1611, according to Bourligueux (1970), p. 172.
