Angelo Notari (1566-1663) was born in Padua, was trained and served for some time in Venice, and then took a position in London in 1610 (age 44). The present recording comes from his only printed collection, done in London as one of the first two (with Parthenia) engraved scores in England. Other manuscript sources show Notari arranging madrigals by others for high voice - harmonic bass ensembles, as would be characteristic of the "nuove musiche" trend.
