Abstract(s)
The arrangements of the six solo motets originally composed in the 1640s by Milanese singer and composer Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602–1676/1678), which were elaborated by the Silesian composer Daniel Speer (1636–1707), and published in his Philomela angelica collection, are specific examples of the intricate ways and various forms of dissemination of Italian music beyond the Alps and its assimilation and adaptation in different periods and places. The article presents the current research on the facts and circumstances which caused Speer's interest in the 40 year old music of the Milanese nun. Some hypotheses for further research are introduced and the procedures applied in the creation of these arrangements are discussed. Speer intentionally wanted to propose a modernised version of the originals reflecting the development of the concertante style of the high-Baroque period.
