Mappamundi: Italian songs/instrumentals

Mappamundi: late Renaissance Italian songs and dances

This group of songs was prepared for an exhibit of the art of Caravaggio at the North Carolina Museum of Art. Pat Petersen joined us for the occasion with recorders and crumhorms. Below those are a few of the Italian mazurkas, tangos etc. which we have done for concerts and weddings.
