Alias: Ioannes Scrivano


Born: c.1478

Died: 1557


Spanish-born Juan Escribano (also known as Johannes Scribanus) was one of the longest-serving members of the Sistine Chapel choir in the early sixteenth century. Having commenced his adult singing career as a soprano in the cathedral choir in Salamanca in the 1490s, he joined the pontifical choir in Rome sometime in the first decade of the sixteenth century, serving until his retirement and return to his homeland in 1539. The extent of his output is unknown: the only surviving sacred works, all contained in Vatican manuscripts, are a Magnificat sexti toni, settings of the Lamentations, and one Marian motet.
