Ordóñez was appointed chapelmaster at Santiago de Compostela Cathedral on 3 September 1529; a licence granted the composer in 1532 for a leave of absence from Santiago to visit his home town of Plasencia (Extremadura) reveals that he was born in that town. Ordóñez remained as maestro in Santiago only until 1536, since on 17 July of that year Logroño was named as his successor. His whereabouts between 1536 and 1541 remain a mystery, but from at least 1541 he was chapelmaster at Palencia Cathedral, and he remained there until his death in 1551.
