Venetian printer Ottaviano Scotto is rarely associated with the development of the Parisian chanson, but his Canzoni francese, libro primo of 1535 played its own crucial role in the early history of the genre thanks to a number of French composers working in Italy in the first third of the sixteenth century. Scotto’s twenty-three chansons offer a representative cross section of this activity, a development rather apart from that unfolding in the north. Although Attaingnant had earlier published eleven of the chansons in Paris, Scotto’s texts make clear that he had no access to these editions, and ten were never published north of the Alps. This volume offers the first modern edition of Scotto’s collection, of which all four partbooks have only recently become available, and thereby adds to the repertoire seven works—two by Willaert, one by Bridam, and four anonymous—known until now only in incomplete form.
