annali-storia-bresciana-mazzetti-ticli-palma-choralis-2017A new unmissable book about Brescian music and culture is finally out: it was presented in Brescia on May 4, 2018.

Barezzani, Maria Teresa Rosa, and Mariella Sala, eds. Cultura musicale bresciana. Reperti e testimonianze di una civiltà. Annali di storia bresciana, 5 (2017). Brescia: Morcelliana, 2017.

We are very proud our directors Marcello Mazzetti and Livio Ticli collaborated on the book editing. Further, they wrote an interesting chapter, focussing on performance practice of sacred music in Brescia and the relationship between teaching precepts, system of knowledges and music skills of singers, composers and ‘contrapuntisti’ (aka improvisers) in the Renaissance and Early Baroque.
It comes with modern editions of neglected music from Brescia and formulas for improvising over plainchant from 17th-cent. treatises.
