Most music that is played nowadays was passed down to us through handwritten and printed music sources. These are a fundamental part of our cultural heritage which deserve to be unearthed and shown in their full glory. The first step in this process is compiling an inventory of music sources held in libraries, archives, monasteries and private collections, a task the Répertoire International des Sources Musicales (RISM) has been pursuing for 60 years with working groups in countries around the world. The pieces by Maurizio Cazzati chosen for this recording are emblematic of the richness of libraries and archives, but above all they illustrate the ability of music sources to allow music to cross boundaries and to travel through time. In some ways, op.36 is the first example of what, by the end of the 1600s, would become the distinguishing traits of the so-called Bolognese School. Voces Suaves is a vocal ensemble from Basle which specializes in one-to-a-part performances of Renaissance and Baroque music.
