Galuppi is born on the Venetian island of Burano, which gave him the nickname 'Il Buranello'. Early musical training came from his father, a barber and violinist. Later training came with Antonio Lotti, composer and church organist at St.Mark's in Venice. Galuppi himself later became responsible for the music played in St.Mark's. Europe knew him as an opera composer. He visited and stayed in London and St.Petersburg, where he composed operas for theatres in those cities. He also had a reputation as a harpsichordist; and it was around this reputation that Robert Browning spun his poem A Toccata of Galuppi.

From the late 17th century onwards, mainly through the contributions of leading opera composers such as Feo, Galuppi, Hasse, Pergolesi, Jommelli, Gassmann, Cimarosa and Gossec, individual movements of the requiem became gradually larger, the orchestration richer and the solo vocal writing more elaborate. In some cases, single texts, usually the sequence and the responsory, were set separately, either as independent motets or as a means of providing vivid contrast within chanted forms of the funeral service.
