Commentary On 31 January 1670 (1669 more veneto), Natale Monferrato received 100 ducats from the Procuratori de Supra for the dedication of a printed collection and a gift of three choirbooks with 4-voice music for the use of the Ducal Chapel. Two of these choirbooks contained one mass each and the other a Magnificat (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 146, fol. 156r: ‘tre grandi manuscritti di doi Messe, et un de Magnificat in musica à quattro voci per servitio della medesima Chiesa’). During his life, Monferrato published eight ‘a capella’ masses: six in his Missae ad usum cappellarum quattuor et quinque vocibus concinendae op. 13 (Venice: Giuseppe Sala, 1677. RISM A/I: M 3047), and two in his Messe et Magnificat a quattro voci op. 19 (Venice: Giuseppe Sala, 1681. RISM A/I: M 3051). Three published masses are transmitted in the two surviving choirbooks of the Ducal Chapel of St Mark’s. The four lost volumes may have contained the other five published masses. On 10 March 1678, the Procuratoria de Supra authorized payment to the copyist for a choirbook ‘in square notation’ with two 4-voice masses by Monferrato (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 147, fol. 53v: ‘nel scriver in notte quadrate due Messa a quattro composte dal medesimo [= Monferrato] de carte sessantadoi’). This payment is related to a surviving choirbook (Venice, Basilica di San Marco, Libri musicali 6). On the same occasion, the Procuratoria approved payment for another choirbook (now missing) with two further masses by Monferrato (fols 53v-54r: ‘nel scrivere due altre Messe in note quadrate composte da detto Maestro [= Monferrato] de carte quarantadoi’).

Commentary On 25 July 1660, Giovanni Rovetta received 25 ducats for the composition of a mass and four Magnificats, together with purchase of paper, copying and binding (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 146, fol. 78v: ‘per sodisfar l’opera, et la spesa di ligatura, e carte reali della Messa, et quatro Magnificat’).
According to Paolo A. Rismondo, Pietro Francesco Caletti Bruni detto il Cavalli: tappe per una biografia, s.l., s.d., 2009, p. 447, the 11 volumes of masses was 'del Roetino' (by the 'Rovettino': Giovan Battista Rovetta): this interpretation of the original source is doubtful.

This entry probably refers to the choirbook ‘in carta reale’ copied by don Angelo Rigoni in the autumn of 1640: 'Che a don Angelo Rigoni crociffero sijno dati ducati 19, grossi 9, per sue mercedi di haver rescritto in musica in carta reale messe del maestro Monte Verde [c. 67v] et Palestrina et fattone carte 60 a Lire 2 la carta per servitio del coro della chiesa di San Marco [De sì] 3 [de no] 0.' (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 144, sub data).

The missing choirbook may have contained the ‘a cappella’ mass published in Monteverdi’s Selva morale e spirituale (Venice: Bartolomeo Magni, 1641. RISM A/I: M 3446) or that of the posthumous Messa a quattro voci, et salmi […] (Venice: Alessandro Vincenti, 1650. RISM A/I: M 3447).

Commentary On 26 February 1671 (1670 more veneto), the Procurators of St Mark’s approved a payment in favour of the maestro di cappella Francesco Cavalli for the binding of a choirbook containing a 4-voice mass by Cavalli (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 146, fol. 165v: ‘in far religar un libro d’una messa à quatro del medesimo’). This payment was probably related to one of the three missing choirbooks.
On 5 July 1671, the Procurators of St Mark’s approved a payment for the composition of a 5-voice mass by Cavalli (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 146, fol. 168r: ‘in carta da registrar una messa à cinque voci da lui composta’). The choirbook containing this mass was realized before spring 1675: cf. payment of 28 April 1675 ‘per saldo delle operazioni per l’addietro fatte nel scriver in notte quadrate la Messa a cinque’ (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 147, fol. 6v). On the same occasion, payment for a third choirbook containing another 4-voice mass by Cavalli was appoved (Ibid.: ‘per saldo delle operazioni per l’addietro fatte nel scriver in notte quadrate […] altra Messa a quattro’).

One of the volumes mentioned in the inventory could be the choirbook ‘in carta reale’ purchased on 2 September 1614 by Friar ‘Florian’ of the convent of San Salvador: 'acquisto per 39 lire da tal fra’ Florian del convento di San Salvador un nuovo manoscritto musicale rilegato in foglio reale contenente opere del Palestrina' (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 141, c. 6v, sub data); 'Che siano pagate lire trentanove al pre da San Salvador per haver datto un libro a penna di canto per la chiesa di san Marco in foglio reale, et ligado, così consigliando il Maestro di Capella, et da Sue Signorie illustrissime veduto [de si] 2 [de no] 0' (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, Giornale cassier, reg.8, 20 September 1614). 
Another choirbook ‘
in carta reale’ containing masses by Palestrina was copied in the autumn of 1640 by don Angelo Rigoni: 'Che a don Angelo Rigoni crociffero sijno dati ducati 19, grossi 9, per sue mercedi di haver rescritto in musica in carta reale messe del maestro Monte Verde [c. 67v] et Palestrina et fattone carte 60 a Lire 2 la carta per servitio del coro della chiesa di San Marco [De sì] 3 [de no] 0.' (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 144, 28 October 1640).

This entry refers to copies of two in-folio printed editions of Palestrina’s masses. Possible editions are:
1) Missarum liber secundus. Rome: eredi di Valerio & Aloisio Dorico, 1567. 1 choirbook in-folio. RISM A/I: P 660.
2) Missarum […] liber secundus. Rome: Nicolò Mutii, 1599. 1 choirbook in-folio. RISM A/I: P 662.
3) Missarum […] liber secundus. Rome: Nicolò Mutii, 1600. 1 choirbook in-folio. RISM A/I: P 663.

5) Missarum […] liber quintus. Rome: Hubert Naich, 1599. 1 choirbook in-folio. RISM A/I: P 672.
The small books, also missing, may have been printed partbooks or manuscripts in-4° format. In April 1614, the new chapel master Claudio Monteverdi requested the purchase of two printed choirbooks of masses by Palestrina (books 2 and 5). Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 141 (Terminazioni 1614–1620), fols 1v–2r (6 April 1614): ‘[…] con Gardano libraro [= Bartolomeo Magni] hanno concluso mercato del 2.° et 5.° libro delle messe del Palestina [= Palestrina] a 4, 5 et 6, del p[rim]o l[ibr]o di Franc[esc]o Soriano, delle messe a 6 et otto de Orlando Lasso, de Ger[ola]mo Lambardi a 4. Et del p[rim]o de Paulo Paisoti [= Paciotti] a 4 et 5, tutti legati in carta carton grosso et saldo con la bergamina di sopra azura […]’. One of the two missing choirbooks was repaired on 29 August 1671, by order of Francesco Cavalli (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 146, fol. 170v: ‘aggiustato in più lochi il libro delle Messe della Palestina’).

Commentary This entry probably represents a conflation of several print collections containing motets by Monferrato. Monferrato published seven individual collections, of which six are preserved. Two of these are dedicated to Procurators of St Mark’s:
1) Motetti concertati a due e tre voci op. 3. Venice: Francesco Magni, 1655. 4 partbooks. RISM A/I: M 3037. Dedicated to Giacomo Cornaro, Procurator of St Mark’s.
2) Id. (reprint). Venice: Francesco Magni, 1660. 4 partbooks. RISM A/I: M 3038.
3) Motetti concertati a due e tre voci op. 18. Venice: Giuseppe Sala, 1681. 4 partbooks. RISM A/I: M 3050. Dedicated to the Procurators of St Mark’s.
A copy of this last edition is kept in the music collection of the Basilica of St Mark’s. On 31 Janurary 1670 (1669 more veneto), the Procurators of St Mark’s awarded Monferrato the sum of 120 ducats for ‘alcuni libri in stampa di sue composizioni’. The reference is probably to the Motetti concertati a due e tre voci, published in 1669 without opus number or dedication (Venice: Francesco Magni. 4 partbooks. RISM A/I: M 3043). Other possible editions:
1) Motetti a voce sola […] Libro primo op. 4. Venice: Alessandro Vincenti, 1655. 2 partbooks. RISM A/I: M 3041. Dedicated to Giovanni Domenico Biava, Governor of the Ospedale dei Mendicanti.
2) Motetti a voce sola […] Libro secondo op. 5. Venice: 1655-1666. Lost: presumably 2 partbooks.
3) Motetti a voce sola […] Libro terzo op. 6. Venice: Alessandro Vincenti, 1655. 2 partbooks. RISM A/I: M 3042.

Commentary This entry refers to a missing collection of motets by Ziani for 2–4 voices and basso continuo, probably one of three lost editions by this composer to be published between 1640 and 1660 (op. 3, 4 and 5). Ziani’s Sacrae laudes op. 6 (Venice: Francesco Magni, 1660. RISM A/I: Z 175) may be excluded insofar as it consists of eight partbooks.

On 26 February 1671 (1670 more veneto), the Procurators of St Mark’s approved a payment in favour of the maestro di cappella Francesco Cavalli for the binding of a choirbook containing Magnificats and motets (Venice, Archivio di Stato, Procuratoria de Supra, Chiesa, reg. 146, fol. 165v: ‘in far religar [...] altro libro delli Magnificat, et Mottetti’). This payment was perhaps related to the choirbook.
