Born: 27 November 1602

Died: ca. 1677


Born into a wealthy family in Milan, Italy, Margarita Cozzolani entered the convent of Santa Radegonda, Milan, and took her vows in 1620, at the age of 17. She added "Chiara" as her religious name, and spent her full adult life cloistered in the convent. She was a prolific composer, until she became abbess. While her publications are for SATB voices, the works may well have been sung by nuns only with the lower voices in octavo.
