Died: 7 January 1625
Ruggiero was born in Velletri, near Rome. It is likely he was a student of Palestrina, and succeeded him at St. Peter's in 1594. Though his output of sacred music declined sharply towards the end of his life, his music was popular and was reprinted several times. He retired from the Sistine Chapel in 1624 and died the following year.
