This edition presents the entire corpus of forty-four secular pieces ascribed to Martini (including opera dubia), who composed and taught music during the rule of Ercole I, duke of Ferrara. These works are found in several important Italian manuscripts, especially Florence Banco Rari 229 and Rome Casanatense 2856; more distant manuscripts in Segovia, Seville, Paris, Munich, and Jena; and in the Glogauer Liederbuch and in early-sixteenth-century publications by Petrucci and Formschneider. Most feature French titles, and the predominating musical style suggests instrumental performance. Many of these pieces are excellent, graceful compositions that continue to be worthy of performance.
