(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.

Choral Music

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.

Instrumental Music

An instrumental pavane, apparently by Alberti, survives in the English Lumley part books of about 1560.
