Biography A crucial figure in the history of the oratorio, Carissimi enjoyed a grand reputation among his contemporaries and taught among others Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Johann Caspar Kerll and Christoph Bernhard. From around 1628 till his death he was associated with Rome's Collegio Germanico, whose library's dispersal has made authentication of a huge number of attributed works in mss. problematic.
