This studyMoreAn underground tradition of sacred songs--Italian laude--thrived in Italy during the sixteenth century.

The texts of many were written by the condemned heretic Fra Girolamo Savonarola, who was burned at the stake in Florence in 1498. This study explores the religious and social functions of these laude during Savonarolas time in Florence. It also reconstructs music for laude written to venerate the friar after his death. Savonarolas meditations on Psalms 30 and 50 were also set to music as motets by some of the leading composers of the 16th century, in a style of high art music remarkably distinct from the more popular tone of the lauda.

These complex motets were often the result of networks of patronage at courts in Ferrara, France, and England. The book includes a CD with a generous selection of performances of the music discussed.
