Flecha served several noble patrons, particularly the Duke of Calabria in Valencia, and is best known for his ensaladas – mixtures, or ‘salads’, of related texts and musical fragments on a given subject, and often making use of pre-existing material. This genre is of course closely related to the ‘programme’ chansons of Janequin.

Flecha fut au service de plusieurs nobles, en particulier le Duc de Calabre à Valence et est connu surtout pour ses ensaladas – mélanges ou «salades», de textes associés et de fragments musicaux sur un sujet donné, utilisant souvent des composants existant déjà. Ce genre est bien sûr étroitement lié aux chansons «à programme» de Janequin.

Flecha diente mehreren adligen Gönnern, besonders dem Herzog von Kalabrien in Valenzia, und ist am besten bekannt durch seine ensaladas – Zusammenstellungen oder „Salate“ von zusammengehörigen Texten und musikalischen Fragmenten zu einem gegebenen Thema, in denen häufig bereits vorliegendes Material benutzt wird. Diese Art von Werk ist natürlich ähnlich den „Programme-Chansons“ von Janequin.
