In 1619, there was a great theft in the city of Venice. Over the course of two to three years in St. Mark’s Basilica, a singer named Leonardo Simonetti likely heard and sang the beautiful music of his colleague, Alessandro Grandi. In secret, Simonetti acquired the drafts of these songs and edited them into a collection of motets which were then printed under the title Celesti Fiori.
