Shaping the Invisible: Music in the Time of Leonardo da Vinci CD

  • This album features music by composers known to Leonardo from his time in Florence, where he studied music with Antonio Squarcialupi, the organist at Santa Maria del Fiori, the Florence cathedral. Squarcialupi owned an important manuscript of early Italian music, and works from this are included here. Also featured is music by Dufay, Squarcialupi s successful contemporary, and sacred and secular pieces that could be heard in Florence at the turn of the 1500s.

    Music should be called none other than the sister of painting . . . it is the shaping of the invisible.
