ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SFZ Music is delighted to present this latest recording of His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts, featuring a selection of instrumental and sacred vocal music by Gioseffo Guami. Although little known today, Guami was one of the most renowned musicians in all of Italy during the High Renaissance, enjoying an illustrious career. Following an apprenticeship with Adrian Willaert, Guami was deputy to Orlande de Lassus in Munich, and then organist at St Mark’s, Venice, alongside Giovanni Gabrieli, before returning to his native and beloved city of Lucca (hence the Canzona ‘La Luchesina’ – and the title of this CD).
Guami’s vocal music demonstrates both a mastery of counterpoint and a sensitivity to text setting that marks him out as one of the forward-looking composers of his time. His surviving instrumental music often includes elaborate written-out ornamentation, giving us a rare glimpse of the style of virtuosic passagework that the most expert instrumentalists of the time might otherwise have improvised.
The influence of his encounters with some of the greatest composers of the period is audible in Guami’s music, but nevertheless, the distinct and individual voice of this neglected master musician shines throughout the music in this collection.
