Giovanni Domenico Rognoni Taeggio (? - before 1626) was an Italian composer from the Renaissance period. He was an organist in Milan ca. 1605, and ducal maestro di cappellathere from 1619. His publications include instrumental canzonas, some polychoral, madrigals in up to eight parts and a setting of the Ambrosian-rite Requiem. He was the son of Riccardo Rognoni and brother of Francesco Rognoni Taeggio, both prominent Italian composers and musicians. He was active in Milan, but had connections with royalty from as far abroad as Archduke Charles of Austria, and King Sigismund III Vasa of Poland. Rognoni was a Papal Knight and hereditary Palatine Count. He published both collections of his works and treatises. His most famous work was Selva de varii passaggi, on both vocal and violin technique, and on how to ornament.

Canzonas are strictly instrumental works whose height of popularity was from around 1584 until the mid 17th century. The instrumental term canzona changed genders from the masculine canzon, and many are given simple feminine-gendered titles, such as "La Bevilacqua" (Canale), "La Capriola" (Maschera), "La Spiritata" (Gabrieli), etc. Many start with a simple dactylic rhythm characteristic of the earlier French vocal chansons (a semibreve followed by two minims), though the term was fluid in the period, and many pieces now called ricercars were published in books of canzonas. A frequent term used from the earliest publications was "canzoni per sonare" or "canzoni da sonare" ("songs to be played"). Another term occasionally used (for instance, by Banchieri) is "canzon alla francesce" ("French-type song"). Eventually the form morphed into the "canzona sonata" (a played song), followed by the mid-baroque "sonata" (something simply "played").

Although originally created for four period instruments, I created this Arrangement of the Canzona in G Major (La Binama) for String Quartet (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
