Albert de Rippe (Alberto da Ripa) (c. 1500–1551) was an Italian lutenist and composer. He was known variously as: Alberto da Mantova, Alberto Mantovano, Alberto da Ripa, Albert de Rebe, Albert de Mantoue, Albert Ripae and Albert de Rippe. He was born in Ripa di Suzzara in the province of Mantua but the date remains unclear. Some scholars place it around the period of 1470-1480, others, and perhaps more likely, suggest 1500. He worked in Mantua before 1528, when he left for France. There, he joined the court of Francis I. De Rippe was evidently held in great esteem at the court, as his annual salary was double that of any other lutenist, and he also frequently received gifts of land, money, wine, etc., and various other benefits. He only published three works during his lifetime, but six volumes of his music were published posthumously by his pupil, Guillaume de Morlaye. That edition was titled, and is now sometimes referred to as, tab(u)lature de leut.

The extraordinary celebrity that Alberto da Mantova now enjoyed meant a universal recognition and his name was regularly associated with the Divine Francesco da Milano. A recognition confirmed by the fact that in 1574 Phalese, in the publication “Thesaurus Musicus”, reprinted six of our maestro’s fantasies. These very particular pieces by Albert de Rippe have unique characteristics for this the first half of the 16th century.

De Rippe's oeuvre consists of 26 fantasias, 59 intabulations (46 chansons, 10 motets and 3 madrigals) and 10 dances, all for six-course lute, and 2 fantasias for four-course Renaissance guitar. The lute fantasias are now considered his most important works: they represent a novel type for the time, of purely instrumental composition. Their dense polyphony and complex architecture (some evolve for several hundred bars), as well as the skill required to play them, make the fantasias some of the most important works in the repertoire.
