[Fetis gives born 11.dec.1681 Palermo ; Oesterreichisches Biographisches Lexicon by Bermann gives died 21.aug.1736 Raudnitz monastery, Bohemia ; a note on a manuscript in the Santini collection in Munster says he died 1757 in Madrid ; since nothing is known of him after 1732, a death in 1736 is plausible but 1757 is very unlikely]
