With Gloriosus Franciscus, Anonima Frottolisti presents a cross-section of history of music relevant to the Franciscan ideal through the first three centuries of the history of the Order: this sequence of selected pieces reveals both the learned side of this music and its closeness to “folk” devotion during the period straddling the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, as a symbolic homage to the city where Anonima Frottolisti was born (Assisi): «Di questa costa, là dov’ella frange più sua rattezza, nacque al mondo un sole, come fa questo talvolta il Gange però chi d’esso loco fa parole, non dica Ascesi chè direbbe corto, ma Oriente, se proprio dir vuole...». (Dante Alighieri, Divina Commedia, Paradiso, 11th Canto).
