In 1654-55 he was organist of Accademia della Morte, then later he moved to Rome where he became organist of Santa Maria in Vallicella. As a composer and keyboardist, he collaborated on the performances patronized by the most famous patrons in Rome, including cardinals Chigi, Pamphilj, Ottoboni, and Queen Christina of Sweden. Together with Arcangelo Corelli and Alessandro Scarlatti, in 1706 Pasquini became a member of the Academy of Arcadia. He composed numerous operas, and around sixty cantatas.
