No longer confined to the salons of the elite, music took on the role of social play and recreation.

Paul Schleuse examines these new musical forms through a study of the music books of Italian priest, poet, and composer, Orazio Vecchi. Composed for minor patrons and the wider music-buying public, Vecchis madrigals took as their subjects game-playing, drinking, hunting, battles, and the life of the street. Schleuse looks at how music and game-playing allowed singers and performers to play the roles of exemplary pastoral characters and also comic, foreign, and rustic others in ways that defined and ultimately reinforced social norms of the times.

His findings reposition Orazio Vecchi as one of the most innovative composers of the late 16th century.
