On Johannes Ciconia – List of Works

March 11, 2010

Okay, so I’ve drawn up a list of Ciconia’s work from LPs/CDs/YouTube and matched them this week with Margaret Bent’s edition of the complete works, mercifully located in the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Library thus saving me a trip to Canberra’s National Library, which is the only other copy in NSW that I know of. Concerned primarily with those works recorded with instrumental accompaniment, the list below is light-on when it comes to the religious/Mass movements and the oft-recorded “Gloria”.

Listed Number is from the Complete Works, edited by Margaret Bent. Pls ignore the recording durations. Pls note that Margaret Bent has commented on the veracity of particular works in her article in New Grove Online.
