Born in Busseto in the late 16th century, Tarquinio Merula was an internationally renowned composer and organist. Cremona was his city, but his refined talent and interest in the more expressive aspect of music earned him international fame and positions at the Polish court, among the most prestigious in Europe at the time. The organist and scholar Umberto Forni will dedicate his recital on the Antegnati organ in Santa Barbara to him.
