Jacovelli [Iacovelli], Mercurio


(b Rieti; fl 1585–90). Italian composer. According to the dedication of his Primo libro de canzonette a quattro voci (Venice, 158823) he was then working in his native town. The volume is dedicated to Giuliano Cesarini, Marchese of Cività Lavinia and Duke of Civitanova, whose family the composer had evidently served for some time; it contains 18 pieces by Jacovelli and one by G.J. Coppola. The canzonette are through-composed and written in a straightforward, square-cut and largely homophonic style. In the dedication, Jacovelli mentioned an earlier collection of laudi spirituali for four voices (lost) also dedicated to Cesarini.
