The baptism certificate of Andrés de Sola says the following:

It is believed that he could have started his music studies with his uncle Melchor Ximénez, an organist in the church of Santa María de Tudela, his city of birth.

In 1652 there is news of him in Zaragoza, where he must have stayed with his uncle Jusepe Ximénez, the famous first organist of La Seo de Zaragoza at the time. In his will, Andrés de Sola also gives the names of his brothers, Mosén José de Sola, vicar of the church of Santa María Magdalena de Tudela, and Domingo de Sola, married to María Miranda. Domingo and María had Magdalena de Sola, who took care of Jusepe Ximénez and Andrés de Sola in their old age.

In 1687 the choirmaster of La Seo, Sebastián Alfonso, was forced to retire due to his age and Sola was named his successor. But, a little later, Sola returns to his previous position as organist due to the protests of the singers who are not comfortable with their substitutes on the organ.

In 1690 he stopped giving singing lessons to infants and a certain Simon was appointed for that responsibility. He died in 1696 while playing at mass on Holy Saturday, leaning his head on the keyboard.
