Title : Una sequenza inedita di Raimondo da Capua [Raymond of Capua composed the "Vita" of Agnes of Montepulciano in 1365 after a brief stay in Montepulciano; he reports a liturgical sequence without music, that Agnes heard the angels sing in a vision of Mary seen shortly before Agnes' death; this sequence, with the rest of the "Vita," manifests Raymond's triumphant vision of Mary's glory; Catherine of Siena, even in Raymond's hagiographic work, conveys a more human vision of Mary's joys and sorrows].
