Alongside the Masses, motets and instrumentalized chansons for which Ottaviano Petrucci is best remembered, the enterprising Venetian printer also issued Italian songbooks for the local trade. That trade was exceedingly brisk. The first such book, Frottole libro primo, came out in 1504, the fourth year of Petrucci’s business activity. It was his seventh publication. A scant decade later, in 1514, Petrucci issued his eleventh Italian songbook, in addition to two volumes of laude, Italian part-songs of a similar style but with sacred texts, and two volumes of previously published songs arranged for a single voice with lute accompaniment.
