Giuseppe Giordani (19 December 1751 – 4 January 1798) shares the name with his father. His brother is Tommaso Giovanni Giordani, a composer in his own right. Giuseppe Giordani Jr. was an Italian opera composer, a pupil of Domenico Cimarosa and Niccolò Antonio Zingarelli. In 1774 he was appointed as musical director of the chapel of the Duomo of Naples.[1]. He wrote operas as well as oratorios. His oratorio La distruzione di Gerusalemme was performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples in 1787, with considerable success.(ibid.)

As of 2021, "Caro mio ben" is ascribed to Giuseppe Giordani Jr. - or his father Giuseppe Giordani Sr., after being attributed to his brother Tommaso for a long time.
