Sulpitia Cesis

b. 1577

Sulpitia Lodovica Cesis was a nun at the Agostinian convent of St. Geminiano in Modena. A lutenist as well as composer, her only known works are an important collection of motets for 2-12 voices, Motetti spirituali (Modena, Cassiani, 1619). This collection is dedicated to another nun of the same name, Anna Maria Cesis, at the Convent of Santa Lucia in Rome. Both the composer's convent in Modena and the dedicatee's in Rome were renowned for their music.
