Last updated: 17.09.18
According to the Internet source given below, Ivo de Vento was a composer, probably of Netherlands descent and a pupil of Claudio Merulo in Venice; an organist in Munich in 1564, became ducal Kapellmeister at Landshut in 1568, and was appointed court organist at Munich, under Orlando di Lassus , in 1570. He published manyGerman songs; those in 4 to 6 parts are on the whole conservative (one of his prefaces takes exception to the idea of madrigalian word painting) but those in 3 parts owe something to the villanella style. He also published motets.
