These programmes provide only very basic information regarding the composers, works and performers.

This was a programme of Italian vocal music from the 14th through the 19th century, arranged chronologically. The performance was accompanied by an orchestra formed from the students and professors of the school, directed by Prof. C. Ceccherini. The choral direction came from Prof. E. Cagnola. Also listed is Prof. Carlo Munier (lute).

The programme is supplemented with extensive historical programme notes by Riccardo Gandolfi and facsimiles of three musical manuscripts.
