General information

Publication date and place: 1539 Gardano in Venice. Reprinted in 1541, 1552, and 1560

Composer: Mostly Jacques Arcadelt. Two pieces by both Francesco de Layolle and Francesco Corteccia also included.

Misc. This "true" second book of madrigals was printed by the publisher Gardano only one month after the original 2nd book of madrigals, printed by Scotto, was published. Gardano felt that the earlier publisher had falsely attributed many madrigals to Arcadelt that weren't originally his. Oddly enough, even after his complaints Gardano ended up misattributing at least 4 pieces in what was supposedly a purely Arcadelt song-book.


Facsimile: Original 1539 ed. [IMSLP]
