Caccia

 

a poetic and musical genre of 14th-century Italy. In cacee the words usually depict the hunt, although such subjects as fishing and fairs were also treated. The French term for the genre was chasse.

The music was intended to illustrate the text. Cacee were usually composed for two singing voices and one instrument; imitation and canon were widely used in the vocal parts (one voice chasing the other). Purely instrumental cacee developed later. Program instrumental pieces depicting the hunt were composed in subsequent periods, but they did not follow the old caccia patterns.
