The Oktoechos ensemble, a highly refined female vocal team led by the specialist Lanfranco Menga, presents in this CD a program entirely dedicated to the union represented by the intertwining of music and politics that sees the Republic of Venice as the protagonist of the early 15th century, when its economic growth and its territorial expansion. The naval power of the Serenissima ", and the consequent commercial vitality of the Republic inevitably created the conditions for a parallel artistic growth, evidenced by the contribution of the major artists of the time, who alternated in the Palatine Basilica of San Marco at the service of the doges and of the bishops, composing a large number of celebratory passages, which exalt their power and that of the city itself:the city "where merchants were kings, where is San Marco, where the Doges used to marry the sea with the ring".
