It made me curious about other works by Caccini, and in his 'Nuove Musiche' I discovered other little gems that have warmed my heart in the same way.” Johannette Zomer During the 1570's in Florence, there were meetings in the house of count Bardi, where music and poetry were discussed. Bardi's Camerata, as the group of participants came to be called, had great influence on the course of musical history. Drawing inspiration from the musical theories of the ancient world, the Camerata derived new insights about the composition and performance of vocal music: the most important points were clear declamation of the text and respect for the rhythm of the words. Thus the members of the group were inclined to look critically at the prevailing contrapuntal style of contemporary madrigals, in which different melodies were sounded simultaneously, and the rhythm of the text was considered of secondary importance. In 1578, Bardi summarized his ideas in a 'Discorso...', which he dedicated to his young protégé, Caccini. (…)
