Giovanni Giorgi


Giovanni Giorgi (late 17th or early 18th-Century – 1762) was a priest and an Italian composer. His style of polychoral church compositions are influenced by earlier Roman School composers such as Orazio Benevoli, but also incorporate later Roman Baroque features and (after about 1758) some elements of early Classical style. Giorgi is reputed to have originated from Venice, but few details of his life are known. In 1719 he was appointed maestro di cappella at the papal Basilica of St. John Lateran, Rome, in succession to Giuseppe Ottavio Pitoni. By January 1725 he was in Lisbon, where he died in 1762.
