INNOCENTIO ALBERTI (1535 - 1615)
Born into a family of musicians in Treviso, Innocentio Alberti served as a music tutor with the Accademia degli Elevati in Padua. When that institution was dissolved in 1560, he moved to the Este court in Ferrara, apparently as a cornetto player and a composer, until the court and its musical establishment came to an end in 1598.
Alberti left a number of collections of madrigals, a volume of psalm settings, and a volume of motets. His work is said to be largely conservative in style.
An instrumental pavane, apparently by Alberti, survives in the English Lumley part books of about 1560.
