In the Sixteenth Century, the most important families of the nobility and rich men of the church vied with one another to hire the best musical virtuosos, to be exhibited with pride as a living demonstration of their prestige. At the same time the musician competed to become famous and eminent.

The art of diminution (quick notes that artfully “break-up” the longer note values of the original melody), founded on an age-old improvisatory tradition of virtuoso singers and instrumentalists, flowered especially in the period covered by the works included in this recording: roughly in the half-century between 1575 and 1625.
This CD is a wonderful overview of the pieces that in this period became popular.
