Biography: 

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".
