Nothing is known of his life before 1696, and although he has always been believed to be a native of Catalonia, it is likely that he was born, or at least trained, in Valencia, as many of the musicians he cites as authorities in his theoretical writings are Valencians and none are Catalonians. For most of his career he served as maestro de capilla of Barcelona Cathedral.)
