Biography: 

Alfonso de Vicente, in his music catalogue of the Monastery of Santa Ana de Ávila (1989), p. 68, among the works included in the book of polyphony E-Asa 12 [for piece E-Asa 12 No.8] annotated the following: "307. Fol. 34 v: MORALES Y DE LA REDONDA (?), Misa". In this database, the piece has been provisionally associated with Cristóbal de Morales and with an unknown composer named De la Redonada or from (de) La Redonda. According to DIAMM, the composer was not Cristóbal de Morales, but perhaps Rodrigo Morales; see https://www.diamm.ac.uk/sources/2795/#/inventory. However, since Cristóbal de Morales was chapelmaster at Ávila cathedral in 1526, it cannot be discarded that a hitherto unknown early composition by him would have survived in that city.

La Redonda, a village in the province of Salamanca, is 206 km far from Ávila, and perhaps the ascription of this missa refers to an unknown Morales (a very common name in Spain) from that location or the piece is in some way related to that village. The incorporation to the database of "De la Redonda" as a composer perhaps will contribute to clarify this ascription in the future.

Annotation: 
La numeración en este catálogo de Alfonso de Vicente no sigue el orden numérico de las signaturas de los libros de polifonía; primero se agrupan los libros y libretes impresos (Impresos 1 a 7) y luego los manuscritos (8 a 12). La correspondencia entre la numeración del catálogo (que también utilizamos como sigla en nuestro catálogo) y las signaturas es la siguiente: E-Asa 01 (=Sig. 3); E-Asa 02 (=Sig. 5); E-Asa 03 (=Sig. 4C, 4F); E-Asa 04 (=Sig. 4C, 4D, 4F); E-Asa 05 (=Sig. 4B, 4D, 4E, 4F, 4G); E-Asa 06 (=Sig. 4A); E-Asa 07 (=Sig. 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E); E-Asa 08 (=Sig. 2); E-Asa 09 (=Sig. 6); E-Asa 10 (=Sig. 4H); E-Asa 11 (=Sig. 7); E-Asa 12 (=Sig. 38).
1989
