(1661 - 1756)

Perti was director of music at the Bologna Basilica of San Petronio, a place of great musical importance, from 1696 until his death in 1756. His career there coincided with the re-constitution of the musical establishment, which had been reduced towards the end of the 17th century. His compositions include some two dozen operas and 20 oratorios as well as sacred and secular vocal music and sinfonias that might often serve as a prelude to the liturgy.

Church Music

Perti’s church music includes psalm settings, Masses and versets of various kinds (short pieces intended to replace verses of Masses or other liturgical texts).
