Little is known about Giovanni Antonio Cangiasi, except that he was born in Milan, and was a member of the Franciscan order: in 1590 he was organist at the cathedral in Vercelli, and in 1602 was working at San Francesco in Milan. By 1614 he was organist at Castelnuovo di Scrivia, a small town between Milan and Genoa. These pieces are mostly often playful, often eccentric, and sometimes even bizarre. - BT.

About Italian Instrumental Music of the Renaissance

These pieces are primarily for 2 or 3 instruments. Playable on recorders, viols - and some on crumhorns. Primarily available with just score - although later editions include parts.
