Biography

Tomaso Cecchino (Cecchini) spent his entire working life (1603-44) as a choirmaster, organist and composer in cathedrals of Split and Hvar (27 opuses and a number of compositions published in anthologies). Cecchini's collection of madrigals Armonici concetti, libro primo (1612) is the oldest Baroque collection written for the Croatian milieu, while in his mass books (1617,1623,1627,1628) he achieved a particular synthesis of modern expression seconda prattica and somewhat less demanding performing requirements.
