Born in the Basque country, Juan García de Salazar was employed in Burgos Cathedral. He later became maestro de capilla in Toro and El Burgo de Osma before his appointment to Zamora Cathedral, where he remained for the rest of his life.
Salazar was among the leading Baroque composers of sacred music in Spain, with a number of his compositions remaining in church repertoire at least into the 19th century.
