Born: ca. 1590?

Died: fl. 1611-1626


Bianchi seems to have spent his life in the vicinity of Genoa; a 1626 Antwerp reprint calls him maestro di cappella of the cathedral at Chiavari. His 2 masses substitute elevation motets for the Benedictus (a practice common in France), and 1 motet has an Italian text.
