Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (c.1525-1594)

 

Palestrina was one of the most influential composers of the 16th century. He spent virtually all his career in Rome, first as a chorister at Santa Maria Maggiore before later entering the service of the Pope as maestro di cappella of the Cappella Giulia. He was a prolific composer, writing over 100 Masses, 300 motets and 140 madrigals. However, today he is most renowned for his sacred music and his name is synonymous with the perfection of Renaissance polyphony. In the centuries since his death, composers have sought to emulate his balance of textual clarity vs contrapuntal interest in their search for an ars perfecta.
