The fact of his having been a singer at a time when Italian opera was passing into an empty and meretricious phase, may account for his excessive use of the so-called 'bass.' [See also Arpeggio, i. 87 a; Horn, i. 748 b; Lotti, ii. 168 a.] He has been injudiciously credited with the invention of the sad subject in the binary form, and is said to have been the first to associate contrast of subjects with contrast of keys; a theory which is equally ill-founded. He died comparatively young in 1740.

ALBINONI. Add reference to English translation of Spitta's Bach, vol. i. 425–8.

ALBONI, Marietta. For date of birth read Mar. 10, 1823. See also Covent Garden Theatre. Mr. Louis Engel states that Alboni first knew Rossini in 1844, and that she sang a duet with Madame Patti at that master's funeral.

ALCOCK, John. Line 8 of article, for 1735 in original edition and 1738 in late editions, read 1737. Add that he held the post of organist of Sutton Coldfield church (1761–1786), and of the parish church of Tamworth (1766–1790. P. 51, l. 5, for March read February.

ALFIERI, the Abbate Pietro, born at Rome, about the year 1805, was admitted in early life to Holy Orders; became a Camaldulian monk; and, for many years, held the appointment of Professor of Gregorian Music at the English College in Rome. He was an earnest student both of Plain Song and Polyphonic Music; and published some useful treatises on these subjects, and some valuable collections of the works of the great Polyphonic Composers. He died, insane, before the year 1878.
