Periods of service: 
1601-1603 Sacra Capilla de El Salvador, Úbeda, maestro de capilla

Biography: 

Born in Portugal he studied with Antònio Ferro in Portalegre Cathedral, where he was as a choirboy. Nothing else is known of him until 1601, when he figures as a Chapelmaster in the Capilla del Salvador in Úbeda (Jaén). In 1603 he secured a post as chapelmaster at the Capilla Real in Granada. He composed vernacular music which is now lost and, according to Stevenson (2001): "His surviving music (in E-GRcr) includes four penitential motets (Domine nos secundum peccata nostra, In jejunio et fletu and Adjuva nos for four voices and Adjuva nos for three), two four-part Passions —one for Palm Sunday (St Matthew), the other for Good Friday (St John)— and two incomplete Lamentations verses, Quomodo sedet sola civitas and Non est inventus similis illi, both for four voices".

Manuel Avilez, also known as "Lusitano" and author of the compositions in E-GRcr 1 and E-GRcr 6, should not be confused with the more famous theorist and composer Vicente Lusitano, active in Italy.

Death date:

Nationality: 
Periods of service: 
1534 (23-XII)—1539 Santiago de Compostela, niño de coro
1539 (29-IV)—1549 Capilla papal, cantor
1551—1585 Catedral de Palencia, maestro de capilla
Biography: 

As pointed out by José López-Calo and Cristina Diego Pacheco, documents related to the brothers Alonso, Pedro and Rodrigo Ordóñez often do not mention the first name, and thus it is difficult sometimes to ascertain their identity. In E-V 05 there are four polyphonic works attributed to Alonso Ordóñez and one to "Rº Ordóñez"; although the initial in the latter ascription has been interpreted as "Racionero" (to refer to Alonso Ordóñez), it is most likely that it refers to Rodrigo Ordóñez. There are no known works attributed to Pedro Ordóñez.

Regarding Pedro Ordóñez, singer in the Papal Chapel, it should be pointed out (as mentioned by Lopez-Calo), that Haberl stated (based on the Chapel's diaries) that Pedro Ordóñez died in Rome between 17 and 27 November 1549. However, presumably Pedro Ordóñez was named chapelmaster at Palencia Cathedral in 1551 and continued there until his death in 1585. A 1578 document at Palencia cathedral, though, indicates that Ordóñez had been there during forty years, but in 1538 he would have been in Rome, and thus this Ordóñez chapelmaster could be a different person than the Pedro Ordóñez in the Papal Chapel.
