Aquilino Coppini was a musicist who, at the service of Cardinal Federico Borromeo, especialized in creating sacred ''contrafacta'' of secular madrigals. His contrafacta are of interest for their concentration on madrigals by [[Monteverdi]] (especially the third, fourth and fifth books) and for his treatment of the poetic text. Rather than simply replacing the original text with a liturgical one, he ‘spiritualized’ then through a careful translation which reproduces the phonemes, accents and rhythms of the secular text.

Biography
Aquilino Coppini was a musicist who, at the service of Cardinal Federico Borromeo, especialized in creating sacred contrafacta of secular madrigals. His contrafacta are of interest for their concentration on madrigals by Monteverdi (especially the third, fourth and fifth books) and for his treatment of the poetic text. Rather than simply replacing the original text with a liturgical one, he ‘spiritualized’ then through a careful translation which reproduces the phonemes, accents and rhythms of the secular text.
