Paolo da Firenze


Paolo da Firenze (Paolo Tenorista, "Magister Dominus Paulas Abbas de Florentia") (c. 1355 – after September 20, 1436) was an Italian composer and music theorist of the late 14th and early 15th centuries, the transition from the musical Medieval era to the Renaissance. More surviving music of the Italian ars nova is attributable to Paolo than to any other composer except for Francesco Landini. An unusual amount of biographical information is available for Paolo; while details of the lives of composers of the 14th century are usually sparse Read more on Last.fm
Paolo da Firenze (Paolo Tenorista, "Magister Dominus Paulas Abbas de Florentia") (c. 1355 – after September 20, 1436) was an Italian composer and music theorist of the late 14th and early 15th centuries, the transition from the musical Medieval era to the Renaissance. More surviving music of the Italian ars nova is attributable to Paolo than to any other composer except for Francesco Landini. An unusual amount of biographical information is available for Paolo; while details of the lives of composers of the 14th century are usually sparse, and often nonexistent, recent discovery of a richly illuminated manuscript of Paolo's music, as well as his will, have allowed biographers to piece together a basic outline. Paolo was born in Florence; his father's name was Marco, he was most likely from a humble family, and he had three brothers.

When he resigned as abbot on June 16, 1433 he was seventy-eight years old, giving his approximate birthdate as 1355. He became a Benedictine around 1380, and the portrait of him in the Squarcialupi Codex shows him in a Benedictine black cassock; and on March 8, 1401, he took the post of abbot at S. Martin al Pino. Sometime before 1417 he became the rector at Orbatello, which post he probably retained until around 1427. Sometime during the first decade of the 15th century, probably nearer 1410, while in Florence, he supervised the compilation of the magnificent Squarcialupi Codex, the single most important source of music for the entire 14th century in Italy. Paolo died at Florence.

Since his will was dated September 21, 1436, he either died on that date or later, at an extremely advanced age (eighty-one) for the time. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
