Ave Vera Virginitas: or, more music that isn't what it seems

I'm trying to become more fluent in playing and singing from medieval and renaissance notation, so I'm finding facsimiles of lots familiar pieces to practice on. Unsurprisingly, there are a few surprises on the way ...

Ave Vera Virginitas, Josquin

I learned this from the Big Lochac Snogbook (sic) - a fabulous collection of gorgeous pieces. The SATB setting of Josquin's Ave Vera Virginitas is indeed lovely.

Finding a piece of medieval music - Landini, Angelica Bilta

Submitted by Katherina Weyssin on October 31, 2017 - 6:10pm

So ... this week my wonderful viol teacher, Polly Sussex, set me an interesting piece of homework: find "Angelica Bilta" - a piece by 14thC composer Landini we've been playing - in the Squarcialupi Codex.

There's a facsimile of the codex at IMSLP. Still, easier said than done.
