The term “renaissance” refers to the rediscovery of the ancient Greek and Roman classical culture during the 15th and 16th centuries. Ongaro (2003) noted that during this period, the renaissance of music was mainly recognized in the creation of vocal polyphony as evidenced in “Trionfo di Bacco”. Subsequently, improvements in the use of instruments helped to expand music performance into wider acceptance than had been experienced previously. From around the 1570s, certain Italian academics began to support the use of classical Greek treatises in music. By the early 17th century, these efforts had influenced substantially the creation of monody and opera music in Florence.
