G. P. da Palestrina  (1525-1594)
Last updated: 14.10.17
According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina was an Italian composer who took the name Palestrina from his native town, near Rome. Was choirboy, and spent all, his musical life in service of the Church; but also proved an able businessman. Became choirmaster of the Julian Chapel at St Peter's, Rome, and a member of the Papal chapel; later held other high positions. Much honoured in his lifetime, and described on his coffin as "Prince of Music". After his first wife died he entered the priesthood, but abandoned it and remarried. Apart from a few madrigals his works are all Latin church music for unaccompanied choir - nearly 100 Masses, motets, a Stabat Mater, psalms etc. Posthumous veneration of him led to various fanciful legends.
