Silvestro Durante was an Italian church musician and composer. Durante was a student of the composer Giacomo Carissimi. From 1645–1662 he was maestro di cappella of the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere in Rome, although in December 1637 he was already referred to as the "maestro" of church music at the Basilica, and in 1664 he was still called maestro di capella. Some of Durante's works are in the Düben collection in the Uppsala University Library.
