MIGUEL DE FUENLLANA  

(1553 - 1578)

The blind Spanish composer and vihuelist Miguel de Fuenllana served for a time at the court of Elisabeth de Valois, wife of Philip II.

Vihuela Music

Fuenllana’s music for the Spanish vihuela, a counterpart of the lute, is found in one collection: his Orphénica lyra, published in Seville in 1554. The work includes original compositions for vihuela as well as transcriptions, the latter often including a voice part. The introduction to the collection is a useful source of information about contemporary techniques of performance.
