"Il primo libro delle musiche" by Francesca Caccini

Postby Helene » Thu Jan 05, 2017 11:29 am

Hello everybody,
I have just been searching for some scores composed by Giulio Caccini and found scores by Francesca Caccini....
It would be nice if someone could fix the problem and put "Il primo libro delle musiche" to Francesca Caccini.
Best wishes, Helene :)

It's there under her collections tab. Like most composers of the era, her works were issued in collections designed to fit the formats of printing presses avilable and pricing based on a set number of sheets. The volume contains around 36 works which were not intended to be heard in one sitting. Eventually, the individual items will end up with pages of their own. A collection can include works of just one composer. The defining characteristic is that the works contained in the volume are not intended to be performed in one hearing.
