Digital Booklet
Adiu, Adiu Dous Dame, a new digital-only recording by period ensemble La Rota, brings 14th-century Italian songs to life. Fourteenth-century Florence, the landscape of Boccaccio’s most celebrated oeuvre, Il Decamerone, was one of the most important centres of music and culture in medieval Europe. Despite such setbacks as war, political strife and the black death - which itself set the scene of the Decamerone - art and music flourished, giving rise to such composers as Francesco Landini, Lorenzo da Firenze (Lorenzo Masini), Donato da Firenze and Gherardello da Firenze. Alongside the continued tradition of the vernacular lauda (sung by professional singers), the development of polyphonic compositions such as ballate and madrigals was privileged, as well as a handful of virtuosic instrumental pieces including Istanpitte and Saltarelli, which survive in a sole manuscript of Florentine origin. Throughout the tales which Boccaccio’s characters recount in an effort to entertain themselves during their escape from plague-ridden Florence, are numerous descriptions of singing, dancing and playing of instruments, painting a vivid picture of trecento Florentine musical life.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
