Martini, Johannes, Flemish composer; b. Brabant, c. 1440; d. Ferrara, 1497 or 1498. He entered the service of the Ferrara ducal chapel in 1473. After singing in the Milan ducal chapel (1474), he resumed his association with the Ferrara ducal chapel, where he was held in great esteem. He was an accomplished composer of both sacred and secular works, which included some 10 masses, about 65 Psalms, 8 hymns, and a number of chansons. See B. Disertori, ed., J. M.:Magnificat e messe, Archivium musices metro-palitanum mediolanense, XII (1964) and E. Evans, ed., J. M.:The Secular Works (Madison, Wise, 1975 et seq.).

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
