Biography

Macque's birthplace appears in his motets of 1596 and the date is estimated from his voice breaking by December 1563, when he left the Viennese chapel. He studied with Philippe de Monte and was in Rome by 1574. In 1585 he joined the household of Carlo Gesualdo in Naples and became organist at several churches; his pupils included Giovanni Maria Trabaci, Ascanio Mayone and Luigi Rossi.
