Luzzasco Luzzaschi was one of two organists at the court of Ferrara during the reign of Duke Alfonso II d'Este. Luzzaschi was the central male figure of the musica segreta; his Madrigali a uno, doi e tre soprani, published in 1601, is the only surviving musical document that attempts to record the performance practice of the singing ladies.
