Giacomo Finetti

born: fl1605

The Basilica di Santa Maria dei Frari (or Frari), well known as the location where Monteverdi was buried, is where Giacomo Finetti served as maestro di cappella. Born in Ancona and later ordained priest, he served as maestro at the nearby Jesi Duomo, then held positions in Ancona and Padua before arriving in Venice in 1615 to take his place at the Frari. He died in the great plague of 1630-31 which claimed the lives of a third of the Venetian population.
