Dufay, a New Era

Cantica Symphonia is one of those indispensable treasures of European culture. Without making too much fuss, the ensemble created and directed by tenor Giuseppe Maletto has become a maximum specialist of a fundamental period in the development of Western music. In the first half of the fifteenth century the foundations were laid for what would become the polyphony that would dominate the continent throughout the Renaissance thanks to a formidable group of composers emerged in Flanders. The great pioneer of them all was Guillaume Dufay, whose music already encouraged humanism, emotion and the lyricism of a new era.
