An analysis of the works of composers as Alessandro Grandi, Giovanni Rovetta, Ignatio Donati, Jacopo Ganasso, Santino Girelli, and Frencesco Cavalli, published between 1629 and 1675 suggests an acceptance of the tonal indicators described in the octonary tonal systems and that the theoretical cadential hierarchies provided these composers with a means of organizing large contrapuntal structures in these works.
