I love this simple yet beautiful music. Joan Ambrosio Dalza flourished around 1508 but nothing much else is known about his life. His surviving works comprise the fourth volume of Ottaviano Petrucci’s influential series of lute music publications, Intabolatura de lauto libro quarto (Venice, 1508). Dalza is referred to as “milanese” in the preface, so it must be assumed he was either born in Milan, or worked there, or both. Calata ala spagnola is a tune for which there are six different settings in Intabolatura de lauto libro quarto.
