Non-existent Italian composer from the first printing of the 1980 New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. The entry was removed from later printings of the 1980 edition and subsequent editions.

His entry was taken from German musicologist Hugo Riemann's (1849-1919) invention of the composer years earlier. The 1959 edition of the Riemann Musik-Lexicon has this entry:

Baldini, Guglielmo, * um 1540 zu Ferrara; ita-

lienischer Komponist, von dem bekannt ist: J7 primo libro de 9 Madrigali a cinque e sei (Venedig 21574). Die dem damaligen Nuntius G. A! Facchi- netti (spater Papst Innozenz IX.) gewidmeten Ma- drigale sind mit homophonen Partien durchsetzt und zeigen villaneske Ziige. Ob verwandtschaft- liche Beziehungen zwischen dem Autor und dem ferraresischen Hofdrucker Vittorio B. bestehen, ist ungewiB.
