Julio Segni has been identified as someone who held the position of “first organist” under Willaert and Buus as one who, somewhat later, served under him as “second organist.” The terms were not solely indications of rank. Since the late fifteenth century, St. Mark’s Cathedral actually had two organ lofts, each with its designated player. It was inevitable that antiphonal music-making would be cultivated there, with the cathedral cappella split into two groups, one standing in a hexagonal enclosure called the pergolo (when it wasn’t occupied by the Doge and his retinue), the other across the nave in the Gospel pulpit.
