Heteroclito Giancarli and His Composizioni musicali of 1602

John Anthony Griffiths

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


The first detailed study of an anthology of lute songs published in 1602 by a lutenist singer who had been active during the last 40 years. The style of the songs reflects tastes and performance practices around 1600. It calls into question the novelty value afforded to the music of the seconda prattica in modern historiography.
