Lithuanian treasures, Canto Fiorito
Giovanni Battista Cocciola was an Italian composer, Chapel Master in Vilnius at the Court of Leonas Sapiega. While most of Cocciola's works are lost, the collection of sacred pieces preserved in Vilnius shows that he was an exquisite composer.
Alongside the Cocciola pieces, Canto Fiorino offers us pieces of the Braunsburg Tabulatur, an organ book written by a Lithuanian Jesuit priest, pieces by Lassus and Gabrieli, as well as pieces by the composers of the Vasa Court. (Court of Sigismund III - King of Poland, Sweden and Grand Duke of Lithuania) as Tarquinio Merula, Diomedes Cato and Bartlomiej Pekiel
