He has performed early music since the year 1966 with ensembles such as Atrium Musicæ (Atrium Musicae de Madrid), Hoquetus and Calamus, and currently directs the groups Música Antigua and Ibn Báya (Arab-Andalusian music). He is the founder and director of the recording label Pneuma. His most significant projects are the recording of the Cantigas of Alfonso the Wise and his work on Andalusi music.
