Biography: 

The singer Alessandro Merlo has been confused with the composer Alessandro Romano; this confusion is maintained in RISM and in the Printed Sacred Music Database. According to Sherr (p. 464), Merlo's career "makes it nearly impossible for Merlo to be the same person as the composer Alessandro Romano, with whom he has been confused since the 19th century. Romano, who claimed to be a pupil of Willaert and Rore, published his first book of madrigals in 1554 (when Merlo was a choirboy in the Cappella Giulia)".
