Bonometti, Giovanni Battista

Giovanni Battista Bonometti was born in Bergamo at the end of the 16th century. In 1608 he is reported to have been tenor at the Milano Dome. In 1613 he was called to the court in Graz as singer in the archducal choir. Two years later the voluminous collection Parnassus Musicus Fernandæus was published by Giacomo Vincenti in Venice.
It is uncertain if Bonometti wrote any music himself, although he might have written an opera (Trii). More probable however is the confusion of his name with that of Giovanni Battista Buonamente.
