Catalogue Number: 09K019
Reference: TC 611901
Description: These 14 pieces make up Salvatore's only published work, printed in 1641. The music is in the idiom of the Neapolitan school, of which the best-known member may be Giovanni Trabaci, Salvatore softening somewhat the dissonances, abrupt rhythmic changes, rapid melodic ascents and descents and sudden cadences in distant keys which mark that style. Diego Canizzaro (organs by Annibale Lo Bianco at St. Sebatiano di Militello Rosmarino  and S. Maria Assunta di Galati Mamertino ).
