Notes & Reviews:

Born in the northern city of Ferrara in 1583, Girolamo Frescobaldi was one of the most significant figures in Italian keyboard music before Domenico Scarlatti. Under the patronage of the Este family, Ferrara had developed into a major centre for the arts, especially the musical avant-garde, and Frescobaldi thrived in this exciting artistic firmament. The Fiori Musicali or "musical flowers" occupy a special place among his works. Published in 1635, they consist of three "organ Masses". Designed for churches where there was an organ, but no choir, the organ would play the movements of the Mass in the form of toccatas, canzonas, ricercars and so on, sometimes with plainchant provided by the priest.
