Girolamo Frescobaldi (Ferrara, 15 September 1583 - Rome, 1 March 1643), organist of the Cappella Giulia from 1608, published in 1615 his Recercari, et Canzoni Franzese Fatte Sopra Diversi Oblighi In Partitura… Libro Primo. In the dedication to Frescobaldi’s patron, the “Lord Cardinal Aldobrandino, Chamberlain of the Holy Church”, the composer himself describes this print as “the first, and small offspring of my feeble genius”.

The collection of Recercari, et canzoni became a veritable bestseller and was reprinted no fewer than four times during Frescobaldi’s lifetime.
