Description:
Girolamo Alessandro Frescobaldi, also Gerolamo, Girolimo, and Geronimo Alissandro; September, 1583–1643) was a musician from the Duchy of Ferrara, in what is now northern Italy.

He was one of the most important composers of keyboard music in the late Renaissance and early Baroque periods.
A child prodigy, Frescobaldi studied under Luzzasco Luzzaschi in Ferrara, but was influenced by a large number of composers, including Ascanio Mayone, Giovanni Maria Trabaci, and Claudio Merulo.

Girolamo Frescobaldi was appointed organist of St. Peter's Basilica, a focal point of power for the Capella Giulia (a musical organisation) from 21 July 1608 until 1628 and again from 1634 until his death.

Frescobaldi's printed collections contain some of the most influential music of the 17th century. His work influenced Johann Jakob Froberger, Johann Sebastian Bach, Henry Purcell, and countless other major composers. Pieces from his celebrated collection of liturgical organ music, Fiori musicali (1635), were used as models of strict counterpoint as late as the 19th century.

This upload is dedicated to our member kiilu, who wondered why there was so little Italian music on the concert hall and asked me to play this piece, for which he kindly send me the music.

I hope you like it, Justin.
