Antonio Zachara da Teramo (fl.c.1390-c.1415) was apparently a
slightly older contemporary of Ciconia. The two had some similarities
of style, and apparently a professional relationship. It is surmised
that some of the elaborate Subtilior songs attributed to "Magister
Zacharias" are by this composer. He served the Vatican
anti-popes during the period of the Babylonian Captivity.
