Viadana, Lodovico

(Born; Viadana, Circa;1560; Died; Gualtieri, 2 May 1627). Italian composer. A minorite friar and possibly a pupil of Porta, he had connections with Padua and Rome and was maestro di cappella of the cathedrals of Mantua (at least 1594-7), Concordia (1608-9) and Fano (1610-12). In 1623 he left Viadana for Busseto, then went to Gualtieri. An influential teacher and prolific composer, he ranks high among his contemporaries for the freshness, fluency and expressive quality of his music. He wrote mainly sacred vocal works (23 bks extant, 1588-1619) and is best known for his successful 100 concerti ecclesiastic for one to four voices (1602), the earliest sacred vocal publication with a continuo bass part. His secular works comprise canzonettas (1590, 1594) and instrumental ensemble works (1610).(c)Groves Dictionaries, MacMillan Publishers Limited, UK
