Francisco de Peñalosaca. 1470 - Sevilla 1528
Peñalosa was the most highly regarded composer among the first generation to bring the Franco-Flemish polyphonic style to Spain and the Iberian peninsula.
He was associated with the royal court in Aragon, as well as the Cathedral of Seville; he also had an extended stay in Rome as one of the Pope’s most desired musicians.
A large number of his works survive in Spanish sources.
