According to Tess Knighton (1999-2002), vol. 1, pp. 170-171: "La identificación del compositor Alonso de Alba, a quien se atribuyen varias obras religiosas y al menos una canción, se complica por la existencia de dos candidatos posibles: un capellán real y un M[aestro de] C[apilla] sevillano."

Abstract: 

Based on Knighton's 1983 doctoral dissertation, her 1999 "Prólogo" to this publication of reference updates the bibliography and research on this topic up to that time. The appendices to this study included chronological list of payments to Ferdinand's musicians from 1475 to 1516, payments to musicians of the Castilian royal chapel (1484-1504), transcriptions of documents, inventories of three manuscript sources with repertory associated with the royal chapels of Isabel and Ferdinand, and short biographies of composers.
