Born: fl. 1590



Italian composer who flourished between 1588–94. In 1588 he was commissioned by Count Marc'Antonio Martinengo of Villachiara to collect and edit an anthology of madrigals by 18 Italian composers, all set to the same text, which had been written by Martinengo himself. The result, L'amorosa Ero, was published in Brescia (RISM 1588; ed. H.B. Lincoln, Albany, NY, 1968), and includes one setting by Morsolino. He also contributed eight pieces to Il primo libro delle canzonette a tre voci (1594).
