Biographical information

This vihuelist or lutenist is known only by virtue of one work conserved in the Barbarino lute book (PL-Kj 40032). He is assumed to be Spanish or of Spanish origin on the basis of his name and his presence in a manuscript of probable Neapolitan provenance. His work, entitled Sopre il Canto piano dell' Ave maris stella del Sigr Fraco Aguyles appears on page 53 of the manuscript, in the section of the manuscript that contains a copy of another manuscript entitled Flores para tañer compiled by Luys Maymón. The suggestion by Osthoff that Aguyles might be the Italian composer Francesco Layolle seems unlikely (osthoff1926, 44).
