fl. Spain, early 16th century

15/4 (?)

16/2 (2)
Nationality: 
Type of musician: 
Biography: 

He is known as the composer of 24 pieces ascribed to "Millan" in E-Mp II-1335 "Cancionero Musical de Palacio", but there is no information about his identity. Barbieri (1890) stated that he served as a singer of the royal chapel in 1501-1502, but he gave no reference and his name has not been found in later research. An identification with vihuelist Luis Milán (owing to the similarity of their last names) should be discarded, since they are from different generations.
