Musical compositions setting Petrarch's poetry to music abounded in the 16th century, true jewels of polyphonic style. There are however, marvelous illustrations of the 'modern style' which came into being in Florence in the early 17th century. All these musical works enhance the depth and emotion of the poetry by Petrarch, the founder of the modern Italian language.
