Biography

Miguel de Fuenllana (Navalcarnero, Madrid, c. 1500 - Valladolid, 1579) was a Spanish vihuelist and composer of the Renaissance.

Little is known of his life. Surely his roots lie in the municipality of Fuenllana, in the province of Ciudad Real, although he was born in Navalcarnero. Blind from birth, he composed a Libro de música para vihuela intitulado Orphenica Lyra (Seville, 1554), dedicated to Philip II of Spain. At the arrival of Isabel de Valois, third wife of Philip II, she brought with her a group of French instrumental musicians who wished to stay in the Spanish court; Fuenllana alternated with this group and his musical works were performed together with those of foreign artists. At the death of the queen in 1568 he continued serving in the Spanish court.
