Lacorcia is considered one of the madrigalists most influenced by Carlo Gesualdo, along with Francesco Genuino, Crescenzio Salzilli, Agostino Agresta, Giuseppe Palazzotto-Tagliavia, Antonio de Metrio, and Giacomo Tropea.

Biographical data for Lacorcia is almost non-existent. Apart from his activity from 1590 to 1620, culminating in his third book of madrigals for 5 voices, little is known.
