Adriano Banchieri (1568-1634), Italian composer, organist, theorist and writer, born in Bologna, was one of the most versatile Italian musicians of his day and is of particular interest as a theorist. He was organist at Bologna, Imola, Lucca, Siena, Venice, Verona, and Milano.
In 1615 he helped to found the "Accademia dei Floridi", the first such society in Bologna: the academy, which Monteverdi visited in 1620, met at S. Michele in Bosco, and was the immediate forerunner of the "Accademia dei Filomusi".
He moved to the monastery of San Bernardino, Bologna, in 1634, and in the same year he died there of apoplexy.

Italian monk, organist and composer. Adriano Banchieri joined the Benedictine order in 1550 and toured from monastery to monastery after that. Although he was a chruch musician, Adriano Banchieri is today best known for his secular songs, in particular the "Contrapunto bestale alla mente" written to the carnival in Venice and published in his "Festino nella Sera del Giovedi Grasso avanti Cena" (Venice, 1608). The sacred part of his large catalogue, however is very different, and rarely performed.
