Antonio Nola (1642-?) was a Neapolitan composer of whom little biographical information or music survives. He is to be distinguished from the better known Giovanni Domenico da Nola born 130 years earlier (?-1592).

Antonio Nola was a minor figure among the Neapolitan composers who collaborated with musicians from the church of the Girolamini, which included Giovanni Maria Trabaci, Scipione Dentice (nephew of Fabrizio Dentice), Giovanni Maria Sabino, Giovanni Salvatore, master of the royal chapel Filippo Coppola and, foremost among them, Erasmo di Bartolo ("Padre Raimo") author of the monumental Mottetti per le quarant' ore.[1] His only recorded work, in comparison with the Magnificat a 5 composed in the same year by his colleague Francesco Provenzale (1624–1704), shows a less sophisticated compositional level.[2]
