Johannes Ciconia c. He was the son of a priest also named Johannes Ciconia and a woman of high social standing. His whereabouts between the early s and are unknown. From until his death inhe was connected to the cathedral of Padua in some capacity. However, it is unclear whether Ciconia arrived in Padua even earlier Hoshek - Balmog, Nakkiga - Ánima Arima His lament Con lagrime bagnadome is described in one source as written for the death of Francesco of Carrara - if this refers to Francesco il Nuovo "the New"it would date from after ; if, however, it was written for the death of Francesco il Vecchio "the Old"as scholars have assumed, this would place him in Padua as early as Ciconia's music is an eclectic blend of styles.
Pieces typical of northern Italy, such as his madrigal Una pantheraappear with pieces steeped in the French ars nova. The more complex ars subtilior style surfaces in Sus un fontayne. While it remains late medieval in style, his writing increasingly points toward the melodic patterning of the Renaissancefor instance in René Clemencic - Madrigaux Et Ballades setting of O rosa bella. He wrote music both secular French virelaisItalian ballate and René Clemencic - Madrigaux Et Ballades and sacred motets and Mass movements, some of them isorhythmic in form.
He is also the author of two treatises on music, Nova Musica and De Proportionibus which expands on some ideas in Nova Musica. His theoretical ideas stem from the more conservative Marchettian tradition in contrast to those of his Paduan contemporary Prosdocimus de Beldemandis. Although contrafacts and later manuscript sources of his compositions suggest that he was well known in Florencehis music is scarcely represented in major Florentine sources of the period; for instance, the Squarcialupi Codex contains nothing by Ciconia.
