The Works of Giovanni da Cascia

Other names: Giovanni da Firenze (PMFC), Johannes de Florentia (Pirrotta, MGG) [but not 026], Jovannes de Cascia, Maestro Giovanni da Firenze, Joh. Florentinus

There is no definitive documentary evidence relating to Giovanni's life. He entered musical contests with Jacopo da Bologna in Verona, and was perhaps associated with the Visconti. He was apparently not a priest.

Agnel son biancho e vo belando, be Madrigal
Appress'un fiume chiaro Madrigal
Chon brachi assai e chon molti sparveri Caccia
De[h], come dolcemente m'abbracciava Madrigal
Donna giÓ fu' leggiadra 'nnamorata Madrigal
Fra mille corvi una cornachia bianca Madrigal
In sulla ripa del dorato fiume Madrigal
La bella stella, che sua fiama tene Madrigal
Naschoso 'l viso stava 'nfra l(l)e fronde Madrigal
Nel boscho senša folglie Canonic madrigal
Nel mešo a sey paghon ne vid'un biancho Madrigal
O perlaro gentil, se dispogliato Madrigal
O tu chara scienša mie musica Madrigal
Per larghi prati e per gran boschi folti Canonic madrigal
Per ridd'andando ratto al teršo cerchio Madrigal
Pi¨ non mi curo della tua rampongna Madrigal
Quando la stella press'a l'alba spira Madrigal
Sedendo all'ombra d'una bella mandorla Madrigal
Togliendo l'un' all'altra fogli' e fiori Madrigal
