Characteristic elements of the Renaissance sound are Annie Haslam's wide vocal range, prominent piano accompaniment, orchestral arrangements, vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, synthesiser, and versatile drum work. The band created a significant following in the northeast United States in the 70s, and that region remains their strongest fan base…

On this CD Fabio Antonio Falcone presents recordings of possibly the two oldest examples of printed keyboard music. He uses three instruments, each of distinctive character: an Italian harpsichord after Alessandro Trasuntino (Venezia 1531) and a polygonal virginal after Domenico da Pesaro (ca.1550), both built by Roberto Livi. For Cavazzoni, he plays the organ of the Church of San Giuseppe, Montevecchio di Pergola, an instrument by a builder now unknown, which dates back to the end of the 17th century.

We know nothing of the origins, youth and education of Marbriano de Orto (c. 1460-1529) other than that he was the illegitimate son of a priest. His surname is probably that of his mother, Dujardin, and he was trained as a chorister somewhere in the diocese of Doornik/Tournai, in present-day Belgium. The fact that the Pope granted de Orto a benefice in 1486 which secured him a lifelong income from the diocese seems to confirm his close relationship to it from the outset of his career.
