[rem: There were many composers in the second half of the 17th century named Giovanni Battista. And since Battista translates as Baptista in Portuguese, the composer could have been any of them. The only justification to list this Salve regina under Draghi is because he is the only composer who actually signed his compositions with Giovanni Baptista]
