Valdessio, Roderico di, fl. 1590 - Autograph document signed, attesting to a tenor's service in Spanish Milan - 1591
Geschichte, Musik - Anzahl: 1 - Handschriftlich unterzeichnet (ALS)

32 x 22 cm. Folded horizontally and written on top half of verso only. In brown ink on lightweight laid paper. Dated 23 February 1591, Milan.

Slightly worn and soiled; browned at edges; creased at central fold; one small hole not affecting text.

Document executed in an attractive 16th-century hand certifying that "Johan. Batt.a Rosson di Caravagio" served as a tenor at a chapel in Milan.

Roderico di Valdessio (likely Rodrigo de Valdés) describes himself in the present document as the "maestro di castello" in Milan, referring to the Spanish garrison established in the former Sforza Castle. The period of Spanish rule in Milan is not well-documented, and we have been unable to locate any details about Valdessio.

Giovanni Battista Rossoni di Caravagio is mentioned several times throughout the late sixteenth century as a member of the choir at the Duomo in Milan.

An interesting artifact from late Renaissance Italy.
