Biography Costanzo Festa was among the pioneering Italian composers of the ‘new’ polyphonic style of the High Renaissance, and also one of the early madrigalists. From 1517, he served in the Papal Choir in Rome, at which time he was one of very few Italians in a choir dominated by Northern European singers. He remained associated with the Sistine Chapel choir until his death in 1545. His sacred output includes four masses and more than forty motets.
