- (c. 1553–1556, Venice – August, 1612, Venice)Composer most associated with the spectacular Venetian school of composition, owing to his brilliant deployment of both instrumental and vocal forces in compositions for cori spezzati. He studied with his uncle Andrea and then with Orlandus Lassus in Munich from 1575 to (probably) 1579. He substituted for Claudio Merulo as organist at St. Mark’s and won a permanent post there on 1 January 1585. After Andrea’s death, Giovanni supervised the collection and publication of his works and assumed the role of principal composer at St. Mark’s. His own major publications are the Sacrae Symphoniae (1597 and 1615). His more than 100 motets and mass movements are almost all for cori spezzati of two or three choirs. He also composed canzonas, sonatas, ricercars, fantasias, and toccatas for instruments as well as a significant repertory of early organ music.
