Biography Giovanni Antonio Grossi was an Italian composer, born in Lodi. He was a priest and maestro di cappella at Cremona Cathedral in 1635, and subsequently in Novara and Milan. He acquired the latter function after a heavy competition with Bagatti and Legrenzi. He was a prolific composer of sacred music (more than 500), mostly for a small number of voices.
