S. Bernardi
Stefano Bernardi (c.1576 - 15/02/1637), an Italian composer and theorist (born in Verona). He was maestro di cappella in Rome and Verona and for the Archduke Carl Joseph before settling in Salzburg in 1624. Primarily a church composer, his style is transitional between the a cappella and concertato styles, the more modern idiom emerging in the motets and psalms of 1613. He wrote a counterpoint treatise (1615) and published books of madrigals and instrumental works for three to six players. The Salmi concertati (1637) are precursors of the solo concerto, contrasting a soprano voice with a four-part ripieno.
