The publication of her first distributed works were contained in Gasparo Casati's collection, who was then the master of the chapel of Novara.

Her predominant genre was the solo motet which was well suited for her succinct and tender style. She published over two hundred works in her own twenty collections. It is probable that Isabella wrote many of her own texts which were illustrated by the music with expressive phrases and substantive harmonies. Besides motets she also composed masses, psalm settings and sonatas occasionally using violins in the masses and motets to support the voices.

Her works make use of a rich and extended harmonic vocabulary, and she occasionally uses coloratura in ecstatic alleluia sections. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabella_Leonarda Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
