Misc. Notes This typeset wrongly attributes these to Orazio Vecchi, whose dates are 1550-1605, but the source says Orfeo Vecchi whose dates are c.1551-1603.

Navigation etc.

  • Though bicinium was an appropriate word to describe music like this from this time, it appears nowhere on the manuscript in Gastoldi's collection.
  • Though the second part is called "tenore", the C2 clef is a clef most often used by mezzo-soprano range, occasionally alto.
