Filippi, Gaspare

(b ?Valli di Pasubio, nr Vicenza; d Vicenza, 23 July 1655). Italian composer. In 1632 he became a singer in the choir of Vicenza Cathedral, and in August 1634 succeeded to the post of maestro di cappella there, which he retained until his death. Apart from a mixed collection of songs, madrigals and instrumental music (1649), his output is sacred and ranges from solo motets to double-choir masses and vesper psalms. Like much provincial music his motets make few demands on the singers but do not degenerate into dull syllabic settings. Confitemini Domino, a solo motet from the collection of 1637, is divided into varied sections: a brief triple-time opening with expansive melodic phrases, a more recitative-like central section and a final triple-time ‘Alleluia’; this use of triple time for outer sections is forward-looking. Filippi also made good use of sequence to build his melodies and lead towards climaxes. (G. Mantese: Storia musicale vicentina, Vicenza, 1956, 79ff)

Filippini, Stefano [L'Argentina]

(b Rimini, c1601; d Rimini, 4 Nov 1690). Italian composer. He was an Augustinian monk and a bachelor of arts. G.O. Pitoni (in PitoniN (i)) gave the date of his investiture as 1616 and said that he was maestro di cappella of S Stefano, Venice, in 1620 but no documentation exists to support this claim. There is also an attribution to Filippini of a motet by a C. Argentini in Lorenzo Calvi's Symbolae diversorum musicorum (RISM 16202). Filippini served as maestro di cappella in a number of churches, according to Pitoni: at S Agostino, Rome, where he was established by 1643; at S Giovanni Evangelista, Rimini (1648–86); at the cathedrals of Ravenna (c1655) and San Marino (1675); and at churches in Forlì, Genoa and Montefiascone.

The first published works definitely by Filippini are three motets which appeared in collections of the 1640s; following these, over a period of more than 30 years, he published 12 volumes of polyphonic masses, psalms and motets, one of which is lost; their style is conservative, like that of most contemporary Bolognese sacred music.

Filipucci [Filipuzzi], Agostino

(b Bologna, 16 June 1621; d Bologna, Dec 1679). Italian composer, organist and teacher. He trained for the priesthood and after his ordination he became organist of the church of the Madonna di Galliera, Bologna. In 1647 he was maestro di cappella of S Giovanni in Monte there. He was also a teacher of singing, counterpoint and the organ. He seems to have remained all his life in his native city, where he became an influential figure in musical circles. In 1666 he was a founder-member of the Accademia Filarmonica, to which he continued to give financial support; he was elected its president in 1669 and 1675. His known works are exclusively sacred and were evidently written for modest forces; in the dedication of his op.2 masses he indicated that the last three works in the collection were so arranged that, if no soprano were present, the top part might be sung an octave lower than written. He contributed two motets to collections by Marino Silvani of sacred works by Bolognese composers. He also composed an oratorio or ‘drammetto’, now lost, which was performed at the Oratorio di SS Sebastiano e Rocco, Bologna, in 1675.
