Italian musical family
This family produced four generations of musicians. Domenico (1513–74), of Bologna, was a composer of early madrigals in the style of Arcadelt. His son Alfonso (1543–88) moved to England as a young man and spent most of his life at the court of Elizabeth I. Morley praised him for his ‘deep skill’ and placed him alongside such worthies as Marenzio. Much more prolific than his father, he wrote many madrigals, motets and chansons. His son (also Alfonso, c. 1575–1628) and grandson, John (1626–82), completed the dynasty.
