Giovanni Battista Califano can be an obscure madrigalist from the last Italian Renaissance. He stood apart from the fast modification of musical design that occurred through the presumed many years of his existence, and was actually old-fashioned by enough time he appears to have began composing. He released a publication of madrigals in Venice in 1784. One resource stated he was the organist of Venice’s Chapel of S Nicola da Tolentino, that was constructed between 1591 and 1601, but another resource released in 1601 lists him as deceased. Although his music occasionally shows a fascinating usage of imitation, generally it really is unimaginative.
