Following early studies with Vincenzo Ruffo at Verona, Ingegneri was appointed choirmaster at Cremona Cathedral in 1570. His pupils included the young Claudio Monteverdi.

Tune Information

Title: [O bone Jesu]
Composer: Marc Antonio Ingegneri
Incipit: 23217 54321 71122
Key: a minor


This well-known motet was attributed to Palestrina until 1897 when the original printed work of Ingegneri, dated 1588, was discovered. The issue was further confused, however, by a later double-choir setting of the same text by Palestrina which contained quotes from the original
Ingegneri setting.
