José Joanetas "San Juan" was born in Olot (Gerona) in 1687, a fact that was unknown until the publication of this volume. In 1697 he entered as a choirboy in the Cathedral of Sigüenza. According to a document preserved in the General Archive of the Royal Palace, in 1707 he was in Madrid working as a teacher at the Real Colegi ode Niños Cantores, replacing Sebastián Durón after his departure for French exile. In 1708 he occupied the post of chapel master of the Cathedral of Sigüenza, having been very positively valued in the oppositions to the magisterium. Finally, in 1711 he was appointed chapel master of the Monastery of the Descalzas Reales in Madrid, a position he held until his death in 1735, a fact that is also provided for the first time in this edition.
