Silvestro Durante (died 1672) was an Italian church musician and composer.

Durante was a student of the composer Giacomo Carissimi.[1] From 1645–1662 he was maestro di cappella of the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere in Rome,[2] although in December 1637 he was already referred to as the "maestro" of church music at the Basilica,[3] and in 1664 he was still called maestro di capella.[4]

Some of Durante's works are in the Düben collection in the Uppsala University Library.
