Tiburtio Massaino - Canzon à 16 for Clarinet Choir, arranged by Matt Johnston. This Canzon was originally included as part of the collection "Canzoni per sonare con ogni sorte di stromenti," a volume of 36 canzoni by 13 different composers, first published in 1608. The publisher, Alessandro Raverii, was based in Venice, and though he only printed music between 1606 and 1609, more than 50 of his volumes have survived until today. This "Canzon à 16" for four SATB choirs, has been arranged here for clarinet choir by Matt Johnston. It can be performed as a clarinet choir or as a quadruple clarinet quartet.
