Sisters doing it for themselves: radical motets from a 16th-century nunnery
https://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2017/mar/10/radical-motets-from-16th-century-nunnery-musica-secreta-lucrezia-borgia

The author of the article, Laurie Stras - who conducted a recording of the motets, just out - argues that the motets were written by Leonora d'Este, daughter of Lucrezia Borgia. There are also Soundcloud links to recordings of some of the pieces in the article, which is nice!
