Lorenzo da Firenze

(? - before 1385)

Italian composer; worked as a music teacher at various Florentine churches 1350-70. The authors he drew on for the texts of his secular pieces include Boccaccio; his secular output includes five ballate, a lively caccia ( A poste messe ), and ten 2-part madrigals, of which Da da a chi avareggia is very florid with virtuoso ornamentation and much use of imitation. One Sanctus also survives.
