Francesco Corteccia (fl. 1539–71) was maestro di cappella at the court of Grand Duke Cosimo I of Florence (r. 1537–74), a patron of many artists and academicians. Corteccia followed Costanza Festa at the head of a long line of native-born composers of the sixteenth century who assumed the chief musical posts in Italy and brought to an end the domination of Italian music by foreigners. Corteccia's manuscript hymnary was a product of his early career, but late in his life he began preparing some of his sacred music for publication. His responsories were published in 1570, and his motets in 1571, after his death.
