Aliases: Valls, Francesc

Life

Born: c. 1665? 1671 has recently been proposed.

Died: 03 February 1747

Biography: Valls was first employed as a parish musician in 1688, then maestro de capilla at Gerona Cathedral in 1689, and in 1696 at S María del Mar Barcelona. He joined the Barcelona Cathedral in 1696 as substitute, interim, and finally as maestro in 1709. His retirement is given variously as 1726 or 1741 (the year he began his treatise Mapa armonico).

His best known work is the "Missa Scala Aretina" based on a 6 note scale first used by Guido d'Arezzo in the plainchant of "Ut Queant Laxis". Valls wrote two further masses on the Aretine Scale, which are less well known: the "Missa Regalis" dedicated to the King of Portugal, and the Missa "Ut queant laxis".

Among lost works are 4 oratorios.
