The enigmatic Florentine organist and composer Francesco de layolle (1492-1540) has remained one of the most shadowy figures among the early masters of the Italian madrigal, much of whose music was lost to history. We know that while still in Florence, he was for a time music teacher to sculptor Benvenuto Cellini. He is perhaps most noted for being among the first composers to blend the Franco-Flemish and Italian styles in polyphony.

In this Capella Cordina recording of his Missa Ces fascheuz sotz, and several motets, he is revealed as a composer of rare lyrical gifts and sensitivity. Dr. Planchart has researched early transcriptions of the Mass and the motets to create his own performance editions.
