Cipriano de Rore


The Flemish composer Cipriano de Rore, active, like many of his compatriots, in Italy, is of importance in the contemporary synthesis of Flemish counterpoint and Italian gifts of melody.

Associated with composers such as Willaert in Venice, he was by 1547 master of the chapel at Ferrara, later taking service with Margaret of Parma, at first in the Netherlands and then in Parma itself, where he died in 1565.
