List of non-musicians

Info

This website provides basic information about musicians and non-musicians related to music books in the database; it is not intended to present a full biography of musicians, but to establish useful connections with their sources, institutions, locations, works, documents, and bibliography. Under "Locations" of a composer's entry we list all the locations in which the composer lived and those in which his music is currently found; under "Institutions", we list only the institutions where the composer worked or to which he applied for a position through the so-called "oposiciones". Whenever possible, we'll try to indicate the approximate periods of service in each institution. The distinction between "Locations" and "Institutions" provides a useful overview about the dissemination of a composer's works; for instance, Sebastián Aguilera de Heredia (1561-1627) worked only in two cathedrals ("institutions") in Huesca and Zaragoza, but his music is found in at least twenty-two "locations" in Spain and the New World.

Beatrice of Aragon, daughter of Ferdinand I of Naples and Isabella of Clermont, was twice queen of Hungary by her marriages to Matthias Corvinus (in 1476) and, after his death in 1490, to Vladislaus II (in 1491), but the latter marriage was declared illegal by the pope in 1500, and she returned to Naples in 1502. 

The Mellon chansonnier was most likely compiled as a wedding gift for Beatrice ca. 1475-1476.

Biography: 

According to Joan Wess, Grove Music Online: "Italian arranger and composer of lute music. His only known works are two collections of frottolas for voice and lute printed by Petrucci in 1509 and 1511. Altogether they contain 126 frottolas and 46 ricercares. The frottolas are transcriptions of four-voice models by Tromboncino, Cara, Pesenti, F. d’Ana, F. de Luprano, A. Capriola and others, of which all but 16 had already appeared in Petrucci’s frottola publications. (Some of the others may have been taken from Petrucci’s tenth book, now lost.) Bossinensis intabulated the tenor and bass parts for the lute, omitting the altus, and set the vocal line above the tablature in mensural notation. Lute tunings in D, E, G and A are implied by the relation between the tablature and the vocal notation. The Italian lute tablature is explained in the ‘Regula per quelli che non sanno cantare’ which appeared in all Petrucci’s lute publications....".

According to Thomas W. Bridges, Antonio Blado (b Asola, nr Mantua, 1490 — d Rome, 1567) printed more than 1200 editions in Rome between 1516 and 1567; he was, after Valerio Dorico, the second Roman printer to print music from movable type in a single impression. "Blado's heirs included his widow Paola (d 1588) and sons Paolo (d 1594) and Stefano (d 1585). The latter's marriage to Livia Dorico linked the Blado firm with one of its most important competitors (as had daughter Agnese's marriage to Giovanni Osmarino Gigliotti).... After Paolo's death the business was continued until 1609 by Paolo's widow Porzia (d 1624) and by her daughter Isabella and son-in-law Geremia Guelfi until 1626, although not under the Blado name after 1609".
