highest honour and knighted by Sigisniund
HI., but the climate proving too severe for
him he returned in 1595 to Rome, where
Cardinal Aldobrandini (nephew of Clement
VIII.) procured him admission to the Pon-
tifical Chapel. The story goes that he fell
in love with a lady of his patron's family,



but he certainly did not marry. Marenzio
has been called the "Father of the Madri-
gal," a term which iu no wise applies to
him ; for, instead of being the originator of
that form, he was the composer who brought
it to perfection. Neither did he, as some
have supposed, confine himself to madrigal
writing ; he was also an important figure
among the great church composers of his
day. Yet it was chiefly upon his madrigals
that his almost universal fame rested, even
in his own time. His style is singularly
pure, facile, and graceful. Although he
belonged definitely to the so-called " great "
period of Italian music (being a contempo-
rary of Giovanni Gabriel! and Palestrina),
and died before the Florentine music re-
form had begun to usher in the " beauti-
ful " or " Neapolitan " period, his music
constantly diverges from the severe diatonic
style which was characteristic of his age.
For picturesque, poetic suggestiveness he
was unsurpassed by any of his contempo-
raries. If, in his "tone-painting," he went
into less minute details than Anerio and
some others, he caught the dominant tone
of the poetry he was setting all the more
surely, in this resembling Arcadelt and oth-
ers of the older madrigalists. "Works : ',)
