Born in Rome in 1600 into a musical family, Giovanni Felice Sances owes his musical education first to the Roman environment, and then to the Venetian, strongly influenced by the genius of Monteverdi which dominated at the time. The turning point of Sances' life, however, occurred at thirty-six when he was hired at the Imperial Chapel of Vienna, first as singer, and then as main composer and favorite of the emperor; he retained this position until his death, leaving the Imperial Chapel an impressive number of compositions.
