Spanish keyboardist and composer Antonio de Cabezón (c.1510-1566; also spelled Cabeçón) was apparently blind from birth. This didn't stop him from producing a large body of works, from being in the employ of King Philip II, or from traveling, including to England. Most of his compositions are for organ or stringed keyboard instruments; only one vocal piece survives.
