Discovered some 140 years ago in an Italian library archive, the Laudario di Cortona is a 13th c. manuscript containing 66 laude, or lauds: a type of vernacular song written for praise and worship.Around 46 of the lauds had been set to music, making this manuscript the oldest known collection of music written in the Italian vernacular.Performing these works is the vocal ensemble Armoniosoincanto, experienced early music interpreters, supported by Anonima Frottolisti, a prominent early music vocal group, as well as several musicians playing on copies of authentic instruments.
