Misc. Notes This piece was written for a royal wedding celebration in 15XX. It would benefit from a comparison with the primary source but it seems to be the same notes as on Jordi Savall's performance. Jordi Savall's performance does not appear on the Amazon link here. It is on: BATTAGLIE E LAMENTS. Montserrat Figueras (sop); Graham Pushee (counter-ten); Harry van der Kamp (bass); Hespérion XX Ensemble / Jordi Savall. Archiv Produktion 0 2533 468. (1982)

Misc. Comments

This piece was a reworking of a vocal work by Matthias Werrecore which describes the victory by Duke Sforza over the French at Bicocca in 1522. The Italian term battaglia is the translation given for the term Guerre in French, which was used in Clement Jannequin's chanson La Guerre, a most successful piece of the time that gave rise to many imitations.

The Aria della Battaglia is an eight-part canzona in two sections. No indication for the instruments is given in the original partbooks; a contemporary account records a performance by eight tromboni, eight viole da arco, eight grandi flauti, one strumento da penna, one lute, and voices.
