The Baroque ensemble was founded in 1999 in Basel, where all the members of the group studied early music at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. The repertoire of La Cecchina goes from the end of XVI century until the end of XVII century, during this period the polyphony leaves the protagonism to the accompanied monody, and that offers the possibility to create bridges between two different styles that always appeared clearly separated: the Renaissance and the Baroque.

Since the founding of La Cecchina the ensemble has appeared at various festivals in France, Spain, Italy, Belgium and Switzerland. The Swiss Radio DRS recorded the group’s interpretation of Francesca Caccini’s composition.
