Andrea Adami Da Bolsena

Andrea Adami Da Bolsena was born at Bolsena in Oct 1663.

On the recommendation of Cardinal Ottoboni (Corelli’s patron) he was appointed master of the Pope’s chapel, and acting professor of music. While in this post Adami wrote ‘Osservazioni per ben regolare il Coro dei Cantori della Cappella Pontificia’, etc. (Rome 1711), which is in reality a history of the Papal chapel, with twelve portraits and memoirs of the principal singers.

He died, July 22, 1742, much esteemed both as a man and an musician.
