" Franciscan singer and composer of religious pieces, carols and secular songs. He is considered one of the creators of Spanish polyphonic songs."

Juan Cornago or Johannes Cornago was born around 1400. He was a Spanish singer and composer, during the transition from Ars Nova to the Renaissance. There is not much information on his life, although he was probably the so-called Johannes Eximii de Cornago, from Calahorra, who asked Pope Martin V for certain prebends in some parish churches between 1420 and 1429. In 1453 he travelled to Naples, to the court of Alfonso 'the Magnanimous', who had the most important music chapel in Italy. He collected the money at the music chapel of Ferdinand I of Naples, and in 1475, back in Spain he went to the chapel of Ferdinand 'el Católico'. A large number of his works have been preserved, both religious and secular. He died after 1475.
