FRANCESCO DA MILANO (1497 - 1543)
The Italian lutenist Francesco Canova, variously known but most often described as from Milan, the place of his death in 1543, spent much of his life in the service of the popes and of leading cardinals in Rome. His lute music was widely known, a fact attested by the diffusion of copies through Europe.
Francesco da Milano left a large quantity of lute music, including fantasias, ricercari and transcriptions of vocal compositions by leading composers of the time.
