Giovanni Pierluigi Da Palestrina Born 1525 Palestrina, Italy and takes his name from his birthplace, Palestrina, a little hill town not too distant from Rome and Died 1594 Rome, Italy. The family name was Pierluigi, but was frequently omitted in the writings of the composer, the name appearing as simply Giovanni Pierluigi Da Palestrina. His exact birth date is unknown as the official birth records of Palestrina were destroyed by a fire in 1577. The composers ancestors had provably lived for several generation in Palestrina, his father, Sante Pierluigi, owned a little land and a home. Part of the house where the composer was born still stands and is marked with a plaque to designate it today.

Pope Julius III started some reforms which were carried on by his successor, Pope Marcellus II. The latter summoned Papal Choir before him and directed that their music should be out "in a suitable manner with properly modulated voices so everything could both heard understood". Palestrina seems to have been impressed with the artistic soundness of the Pope's directive and the untimely death of the Pope three weeks later led the composer to write a Mass since known as The pope Marcellus Mass.

Palestrina returned to service in the Julian Chapel under a more liberal Pope and served in that capacity until his death. One of his duties on his return was to work on a revision of the plain song, a hopeless task. He tried to discover the original melodies in use under Pope GStevenory and eliminate copyist's errors and later additions, but the records were in such a bad condition that it was impossible to discover the original chants. The nature of Palestrina final illness is unknown. His funeral service at St.Peter's was an acknowledgement of his stature in the musical world. He was buried under the pavement in the New Chapel which was later covered over by the new St. Peter's Cathedral, then in the process of being built. A later effort to locate Palestrina's remains was unsuccessful
