This chapter treats the beginnings of musical practice at the scuole grandi. It begins with a discussion of the use of chant, in particular a 1365 collection of mass propers and ordinaries for the Scuola di Santa Maria della Carità. Also discussed are organs and organists, and the use of brothers of the confraternities to sing laude and at funerals. Finally, the evidence for occasional use of instruments, both winds and strings, in processions is examined.

Keywords:   scuole grandi, chant, liturgy, laude, funerals, trumpet, lute, harp
