1597 (10-I) - Catedral de Sevilla (master of the seises)
Coinciding with the hiring of Gil de Ávila (1) as chapelmaster at the Santa Capilla de San Andrés in Jaén in 1595, a mozo de coro with the same name, Gil de Ávila (2), received a payment of 1.938 maravedís. Perhaps they were relatives.
until 1584 (V-12) Colegiata de Antequera (organist)
after 1584 (V-12) Catedral de Palencia (organist)
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At the Institución Milá y Fontanals, CSIC, in Barcelona, a card catalog includes the following handwritten, unpublished, entry: "Paez de Salcedo, Francisco.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.
1608 (VIII) — 1612 (10-III) Colegiata de Antequera
1616 (16-IV) — 1618 (10-I) Catedral de Córdoba
1617 (23-X) — 1619 (2-VIII) Catedral de Toledo
Nicknamed "el de Toledo"; he was nephew (or son?) of Juan Martínez [Martínez] de Riscos (1) and probably older brother of Juan Benítez [Benito] de Riscos (3). Based on literary sources, Miguel Querol stated that Riscos (2) set to music at least twenty villancicos for Christmas, Kings and Corpus festivals in 1615 writen by Luis de Góngora (then racionero of the Cordoba cathedral).
1605 (12-VIII)—1607 (13-III) Colegiata de Antequera, Málaga
Unknown composer. Several lost works appear attributed to "Bargas" or "Vargas" in the 16th-century inventories of polyphonic choirbooks at Tarazona Cathedral. Perhaps this Vargas could be the Juan de Vargas "resident in Seville" who occupied positions as organist and teacher of choirboys in Seville and Antequera (Málaga). A motet for three voices, Popule meus quid feci tibi, found in the Legajo 30 at Puebla Cathedral in Mexico attributed to Vargas could be by him too.
