City Culture and the Madrigal at Venice. He printed his last sizable cache of madrigals five in Scotto's edition of Rore's Third Book ofand this after a dry spell of four years.
During the same time the pursuit of madrigals by vernacular connoisseurs in Venice like Antonio Zantani, Gottardo Occagna, and Domenico Venier was rising with the increased production of what I have called dialogic volumes around midcentury.
With "the good times of la Pecorina" homorhythmic writing a letter gone, these connoisseurs could have little chance to fill their shelves and parlor rooms with new music by the aging chapelmaster.
And Rore — chapelmaster in his own right at Ferrara by the spring of — must have been all but inaccessible. Willaert's young corps of students at San Marco was eager to fill the void.
Girolamo Parabosco had been studying with Willaert since about His tutelage under Willaert probably started earlier, since he was already skilled at Willaertian composition by Baldassare Donato arrived perhaps only slightly later than Perissone to judge from the raise in the nominal salary he received as a zago, a boy singer in training, early in Colin Slim notes that Parabosco may have studied with Willaert as early as the late s, for in two of his ricercars appeared along with Willaert's in the instrumental print called Musica nova; see Musica nova accommodata per cantar et sonar sopra organi; et altri strumenti, composta per diversi eccellentissimi musici.

Counterpoint taught singers how to adapt part music according to the norms of musica ficta, how to make the correct consonances and progressions, and how to improvise over a cantus firmus — a practice alluded to by the Venetian dialect author Andrea Calmo in a letter to Willaert.
For chapel members, Willaert's counterpoint lessons were part of the weekly agenda, and singers who ignored them like one Zorzi Carpenello risked censure from the upper echelons of the church. All but Londariti published solo madrigal books at the same time as they won considerable fame as performers.
On the contrary, what distinguished the new generation were careers marked by struggle, entrepreneurship, and mobility. Unlike Willaert's and Rore's prints of Petrarchan sonnet settings, theirs were interlaced with numerous lighter-weight settings of madrigals, canzone stanzas, ballate, and ottave rime, and all of them were underwritten by dedicatees.
By recasting elite styles in sunnier guises, they disseminated them in forms that could better appeal to commercial consumers.
But let's turn now to this difficult business, so hard that few can manage it, of improvising a counterpoint over a cantus firmus:The letter H is used in German to denote the English note B, while B in German signifies the English B flat. Following the convention of writing music from left to right on a horizontal set of lines (staff or stave), harmony may be regarded as vertical, as opposed to counterpoint, which is horizontal.

Davis’ deft and beautiful writing for strings, piano, and voice evoked a range of moods and influences, from the mournful melodies and high-friction bowing of the Shostakovich quartets to the buoyant dance rhythms of Purcell; from sweeping Debussy-inspired violin lines to soul-wrenching tenor phrases reminiscent of Britten.
