Taken from Wikipedia:
"Francesco GaspariniÂ (19 March 1661 â€“ 22 March 1727)Â was an ItalianÂ BaroqueÂ composer and teacher whose works were performed throughout Italy, and also on occasion in Germany and England."
"...Gasparini's 1705Â Missa CanonicaÂ for four voices and basso continuo was known toÂ Johann Sebastian Bach, who, in 1740, copied it out andâ€”after adding parts for strings, oboes,Â cornett, trombone, and organâ€”performed itsÂ KyrieÂ andÂ GloriaÂ in both theÂ St. Thomas Church, LeipzigÂ andÂ St. Nicholas Church, Leipzig.Â TheÂ Bach-Archiv Leipzig, whose Deputy Director Dr. Peter Wollny discovered the autograph Bach parts in 2012 inÂ Weissenfels, stated that it was an important model for Bach in his exploration of theÂ stile anticoÂ and of theÂ canonÂ in his last decade."
