Biography: 

The manuscript E-C 143 contains an Officium and Missa defunctorum by one Antonio Hidalgo copied in 1760.

The contemporary organ builder and organist named Juan Antonio de Bartolomé Hidalgo (Bañares, La Rioja, ? — Granada, 10-V-1805) was active in Plasencia (Cáceres) and Granada in the 1770s. At the archive of Granada cathedral, a Miserere for 12 voices with instrumental accompaniment copied in 1777 is ascribed to "Hidalgo"; Juan Ruiz Jiménez suggests that this piece could be by this organist.

Perhaps Antonio Hidalgo, the composer present in E-C 143, is the same person as the organ builder and organist Juan Antonio de Bartolomé Hidalgo.

Biography: 

The known works by Francisco de la Huerta are found in "papeles sueltos" (particelle) and not in choibooks. He has been incorporated to this database, since he was an important chapelmaster in different cathedrals and at the Monastery of Santa Ana in Ávila; he obviously had direct contact with the books of polyphony and with the performance of that repertory in the institutions where he worked.

The main part of the extant compositions by Huerta are preserved in the Pamplona Cathedral and in the Monastery of Santa Ana in Ávila, but there are also pieces by him preserved in the cathedrals of Ávila, Astorga (León), the Collegiate Church of San Miguel de Alfaro (La Rioja), the Royal Collegiate of Roncesvalles (Navarre), and the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial (Madrid).
