Life[ edit ] Anerio was born in Rome and lived his entire life there. He sang as a boy soprano at the Julian Chapel the Cappella Giulia from until by which time he was an alto and then he sang at another church until Around this time, he began to compose, especially madrigals ; this was one of the few periods in his life during which he wrote secular music.

Likely he was influenced by Luca Marenzio , who was hugely popular at the time and who was in Rome at the same time Anerio began composing. These positions must have given him considerable opportunity to exercise his compositional talents, for he had already written the music, songs, madrigals, and choruses for an Italian Passion Play by this time.

In , he replaced Palestrina as the official composer to the papal choir, [1] which was the most prominent position in Rome for a composer. In or shortly afterwards, he became a priest a common career path for a composer in the Roman School.

In conjunction with Francesco Soriano , another composer of the Roman School, he helped to reform the responsories of the Roman Gradual , another of the late activities of the Counter-Reformation in Italy.

Works[ edit ] Anerio was a conservative composer, who largely used the style of Palestrina as a starting point, at least after his youthful period of writing secular works, such as madrigals and canzonettas , was done. Nevertheless, he achieved an expressive intensity which was his own. Some influence of the Northern Italian progressive movements is evident, though muted, in his work. For instance, the use of double choirs polychoral works were the norm in Venice : quick homophonic declamatory textures, quick melodic passages in the bass line which were an influence from monody.

In addition, he sometimes used quickly changing textures, alternating between full chorus and small groups of two or three voices, another progressive trait of the northern Italian schools — a trait much in evidence, for example, in the music of Claudio Monteverdi. In his very last works, the influence of Viadana , the popularizer of the basso continuo , is evident, but he still remained true to the Palestrina style in his melodic and harmonic writing.

Anerio wrote no known purely instrumental music. Works by Felice Anerio include: Two books of Madrigali Spirituali both Rome, Two books of sacred hymns Venice, and Rome, Holy Week Responsories for four voices, Rome, 13 Spiritual canzonettas; 12 motets, including many for 8 voices; psalms, litany, other works, many including a basso continuo Madrigals, choruses, solo songs for Passio de Nostro Signore in verso heroico Viterbo, One book of canzonettas Five books of madrigals one of which is lost , , , , unknown Miscellaneous other madrigals not included in the main publications Many magnificats, hymns, motets, and other works were printed by Karl Proske in his Musica Divina Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations.

Christus factus est

Deutsch Famous composers can cast long shadows. The attention paid to Palestrina in the four centuries since his death has meant the neglect of a substantial group of composers who were his contemporaries, or part of the following generation. And yet the forty or so years between and saw a huge expansion in Roman musical activity and a consequent explosion of composition by native Italians attracted to the city. Each of these composers was an individual and, while much of their music did continue to develop the style of the later Palestrina, they also began to explore the new ground opened up, for example, by the advent of the basso continuo. This is certainly true of the Anerio brothers, Felice and Giovanni Francesco, born in the s into a Roman musical family—their father, Maurizio, was a trombone player—and the music presented here, some of it being heard for the first time since the seventeenth century, should help make listeners aware of the riches waiting to be discovered in the works of these composers.
