Felip Pedrell (Spanish: Felipe)(19 February 1841, Tortosa – 19 August 1922, Barcelona), was a Spanish Catalan composer. He worked as a musicologist and early music specialist and edited Victoria’s opera omnia and the requiem of Joan Brudieu. This and other of his writings fostered a keen interest in the early music of Spain. Among his notable pupils was composer Rosa García Ascot.

Roberto Gerhard set 8 of Pedrell's folk tunes as Cancionero de Pedrell.
