Music of the Trecento

14th century Italy was alight with creativity in all facets of the arts, from Dante to Giotto. Composers like Landini, Ciconia, and Perugia contributed to this era of flowering, and we'll sample their works, including classic performances by The Early Music Consort of London from the 1970's, and a 2013 release by Ensemble La Morra.
