Antonio de Cabezón (1510 – 1566) was a Spanish Renaissance composer and organist.

Blind from childhood, he quickly rose to prominence as performer and was eventually employed by the royal family. He was among the most important composers of his time and the first major Iberian keyboard composer.

The majority of his compositions were published posthumously by his son Hernando in a volume titled Obras de música para tecla, arpa y vihuela (Madrid, 1578). Together these collections contain some 275 pieces, most for organ or other keyboard instruments.

This is a Tiento de Lleno.
The opposite of the tiento de medio registro; a tiento de lleno is played on one sound (full register) and uses the undivided keyboard.
