This episode focuses on one composer: Adrian Willaert. All works originate from one volume: ‘Musica Nova’, printed in 1559.

Remarkably, ‘Musica Nova’ includes both motets and madrigals. This was unusual because buyers of collections of spiritual works – such as cathedrals and chapels – were not interested in madrigals.
‘Musica Nova’ was therefore not intended for liturgical use but to be performed at home or with friends.
The works were probably initially intended for performance by exiles from Florence, who had fled their city because of their opposition to the Medici dynasty.
