Treviso Cathedral Codice 36

Our complete edition of Treviso Cathedral Codice 36 is finally available.

The Treviso Cathedral Codice 36 (henceforth, I-TVd 36) is one of the most valuable musical manuscripts of the 16th century in Northern Italy and also an essential source for the motets (most of them unica) of Maistre Jhan (c. 1485-1538). 

It contains 30 works, 29 motets and the anonymous Mass, all for five voices. The most representative composer in I-TVd 36 is Maistre Jhan (18 motets), followed by Jacquet de Mantua and Adrian Willaert (3 motets each), Jean Lhéritier (2), Magister Symon and Costanzo Festa (1 motet each) plus 3 anonymous works, two motets and a Mass.

As a result, this premiere world edition of I-TVd 36 (with 250 pages of music) sheds light on the music in the Dukedom of Ferrara on c. 1530, and especially on Maistre Jhan, a long neglected composer linked with the Dukedom for more than 20 years. His motets show an experienced skill with canons, cantus firmus ostinato, harsh armonies and even chromatism.

Apart from the complete edition, individual works of I-Tvd 36 are also available. Check out our catalogue.
