A canon and major-domo of Seville Cathedral, Alonso Mudarra contributed to the music of the cathedral, as controller of the available funds. He was himself a vihuelist and wrote music for his instrument.
Mudarra published his Tres libros de musica en cifras para vihuela (‘Three Books of Music in Tablature for the Vihuela’) in Seville in 1546. The collection includes 70 varied pieces for the instrument.
