FRANCISCO DE LA TORRE  

(1469 - 1518)

Francisco de la Torre was employed as a singer in the court chapel of Ferdinand II of Aragon, later serving as an assistant priest at Seville Cathedral, where he was briefly Master of the Choristers.

Sacred and Secular Music

Torre left a setting of the Office for the Dead, a handful of villancicos and a number of dance pieces. These last include a three-part alta using the Spagna bass, a popular melody frequently used at the time as a cantus firmus.
