Carlo Antonio Campioni
Carlo Antonio Campioni (November 16, 1720 – April 12, 1788), also known as Carlo Antonio Campione or Charles Antoine Campion, was an Italian composer, as well as a collector of early music.
From 1763 until his death, he was maestro di cappella to the Grand Duke of Florence. He died in Florence.
He wrote music in a variety of forms, but was particularly prolific in instrumental music, publishing several sets of trio sonatas. A setting of the Salve regina is his only published work of sacred music, though he did write more sacred works, such as Requiems for Franz I and Maria Theresa, and a Te Deum celebrating the birth of Francis II.
The music of Campioni circulated in Europe in many different editions and combinations. To this day, a catalogue of Campioni's music put together by at-the-time Ambassador Thomas Jefferson is useful to musicologists in studying Campioni's oeuvre.
