José Ximénez [Jiménez]

Zaragoza 1601 - Zaragoza 1672

Spanish composer and organist. He was probably a pupil of Aguilera de Heredia before becoming his assistant organist at La Seo in Saragossa in 1620. In 1627 or 1628 he succeeded him as organist. In 1654 Ximénez was offered the position of organist at the royal chapel in Madrid but declined and remained at La Seo until his retirement in January 1672. Ximénez’s works, whoch are of moderate quality, include some tientos, batallas, hymns and psalms, all for organ. Selections are published in F. Pedrell and in H. Anglés, in Barcelona.
