(1500 - 1556)

Distinguished as a player of the vihuela, Enrique de Valderrábano seems to have been in the service of the fourth Duke of Miranda at Burgos, to whom he dedicated his Libro de musica de vihuela intitulado Silva de sirenas (‘Book of Music for the Vihuela, entitled Wood of Sirens’) in 1547.

Vihuela Music

The vihuela, a Spanish plucked instrument akin to the lute, was highly regarded in Spain, particularly in the 16th century. Valderrábano’s publication, containing seven books, includes duets, solo vihuela music and songs accompanied by the instrument.
