Canto Fiorito

Lithuanian ensemble Canto Fiorito performs music from the C15th Codex Faenza at St Lawrence's Church in Soderskoping, Sweden, including works by Flemish composer Johannes Ciconia.

Rodrigo Calveyra directs his Lithuanian ensemble Canto Fiorito performing music from the 15th-century Codex Faenza at St Lawrence's Church in Soderskoping, Sweden. The programme includes pieces by Flemish composer and theorist Johannes Ciconia.

Born in Liège around 1370, Ciconia was active mostly in Italy. His work is varied in genre (madrigal, virelai, ballata, canon) and language (French, Italian, Latin). He held important positions in Rome, Pavia and Padua, and he is the composer around 1400 from which we have nowadays the biggest amount of surviving music.
