The details


Juan Cornago (Johannes Cornago) (c. 1400 – after 1475) was a Spanish composer in the transition from Ars nova to the Renaissance.


Almost nothing is known of Cornago's origins. He may be the Juan Carnago of Calahorra, La Rioja, Spain, who solicited Pope Martin V for prebends in various parishses between 1420 y 1429. It is certain that he is the Cornago, a Franciscan, who graduated from the University of Paris in 1449. Then from 1453 he was in Naples serving in the capilla real of Alfonso el Magnánimo. After the death of Alfonso he continued to serve in the capilla under his son Fernando I of Naples. Cornago was the leading songwriter at the Aragonese court in Naples. Later in 1475 he transferred to the capilla of Fernando the Catholic who had returned to Spain.
