GIOVANNI MARIA ARTUSI, Italian composer and musical theorist, was born in Bologna, and died on the 18th of August 1613. He was canonico regulare at the church of San Salvatore in his native city. He is chiefly famous in the history of music for his attacks upon Monteverde (q.v.) embodied in his L'Artusi overo d. imp. (1600). For an exhaustive explanation and a tfanslation of excerpts from these the studies of Dr G. Vogel and O. Riemann should be consulted. These will be found in the Vierteljahrsschrift fiir Musikwissenschaft, Leipzig, vol. 3, pp. 326, 38o and 426.
