The early Franciscans encouraged members of the church to sing songs of praise in Italian in addition to the Latin chants of the official services. One important collection of these is the late 13th century Laudario di Cortona. Cappella Martialis explores some of these praise songs for various occasions—Christmas, Easter, St Francis, and the Virgin Mary—through various combinations of voices and mediaeval instruments.
