The two volumes of Nuove Musiche, which Caccini published in 1602 and 1614, constitute an essential source which led to the ascension of solo vocal repertoire. Caccini accompanied his own singing on various instruments to great success. By having the music serve the emotion of the text, he developed a new and personal language that was simultaneously virtuosic, pure and moving.
