Musicians such as Lorenzo da Firenze, Jacopo da Bologna, and Francesco Landini excelled in setting the poetry of these masters in a graceful and melodic style that was different from the music of their contemporaries. Vocal music is complemented by virtuoso instrumental music with fiddles, harp, lute, citole, and bagpipes. With Dan Meyers, Mary Springfels, and vocal trio ModernMedieval.
