Francisco de Peñalosa


Born: 1470   Died: 1528   Country: Spain  
Francisco de 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. Peñalosa's style is primarily based on that of Josquin, Read more however, one finds much tighter formal structures and highly polished gestures leading to an increased emotional expressivity. In this last sense, he represents an important beginning to the Spanish choral style to be exemplified a century later by Victoria. His compositions are entirely sacred in designation, though the wide range of emotionality lends many a character that would later be considered more properly secular in nature. Read less
