During the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the city of Siena, although lacking the aristocratic and ecclesiastical patronage of music enjoyed in other northern Italian centres like Florence, nevertheless attracted first rate composers and performers from all over Europe. This book sets out to illuminate both the sacred and secular aspects of more than three centuries of music and music-making in Siena. After detailing the history of music and liturgy at Siena's famous cathedral, and of civic music at the Palazzo Pubblico, the author describes the crucial role that music played in the daily life of the town. From public festivities for foreign dignitaries to private musical instruction, this study shows Siena squarely on the Renaissance musical map.
