Zesso, Giovanni Battistalocked

  • Stanley Boorman


(fl early 16th century). Italian composer. The theorist Giovanni Del Lago mentioned him as having been his teacher in Padua. Three of Zesso's frottolas were intabulated in Bossinensis's second collection (RISM 1511), which contains a number of works by other lesser composers. Dun bel matin and E quando andaretu use popular tunes: the former was also set by A. Capriolus, and the latter is related to the folktune that became known as Rosina, one of the standard patterns of the 16th century.
