“Con voce quasi humana” presents a panoramic view of the secular music of the Trecento, from the
earliest surviving anonymous pieces from the Rossi codex, and those by the first musicians whose
actual names we know (Piero, Giovanni da Cascia, and Jacopo da Bologna), via the florid style of
some of the best-known Florentine maestri (Francesco Landini), to the rapid decay of this culture in
the early Quattrocento.

A special aspect of this recording by the Perlaro Ensemble lies in the all-vocal interpretation of the
Trecento pieces. Through this approach, a clarity of pronunciation and phrasing is attained that to a
certain extent makes it easier to hear all the “voices” within the various compositional styles and
genres, such as madrigals, ballatas, and caccias.
This recording focuses on songs about singing, songs that carry the listener away to an ideal place, putting him/her into the poet’s mood. It is up to each person to decide whether the songs seduce or cause torment, or whether they give the listener happiness with their enchanting beauty.
