(1605 - 1672)

Of French parentage, Orazio Benevolo was born in Rome and served as a chorister at S Luigi dei Francesi. Apart from a short period in the service of the imperial family in Vienna, he worked in Rome, serving finally as director of the papal Cappella Giulia.

Church Music

Benevolo made a particular contribution to polychoral music in Rome, writing works for two or more choral groups which, in performance, would make use of contrasts of position in the space offered by major Roman churches.
