Biography: 

The manuscript P-Pm MM-42 (olim Ms. 1577), with organ tablatures (same system used by Venegas de Henestrosa, Hernando de Cabezón and Correa de Araujo), contains the only four works known by this organist/composer: two are titled Obra and the other two Registro. According to Preciado (1999-2002), p. 715, the obras are "llenos para órgano" and the registros are "registros partidos de mano derecha (de uno y dos tiples, espectivamente)"; the four works are like tientos. He points out: "Es notable la Obra de 5º tono, porque en su segunda mitad introduce el autor un motivo de jota riojana, que le confiere un aire de fiesta popular. Antonio Brocarte aclara el estilo organístico español de su tiempo, haciéndolo menos farragoso y más transparente".
