 HOASM: The Venetian Style
The great event in the domain of sacred music in early 16th century Venice was the election, in 1527, with the support of the Doge Andrea Gritti, of Willaert as maestro di cappella of St. Mark's.
The effect of his residence in Venice is evident in the technical resources of sacred polyphony throughout Italy--including Palestrina 's--during the whole of the century.
Having the choir divided for the antiphonal singing of part-music was a device known in the north; moreover, it was not new to Italian soil, but the old practice was to achieve new life at the hands of Willaert (who, however, is not credited with its invention by Zarlino, as is often claimed).

 Tarot Magick in the 16th Century
And because magick seems to often go hand in hand with divination, indeed as Ruth Martin points out, sometimes the ritual difference between conjurations and divinations were not all that apparent, this hints at the possibility that Tarot cards were being used in Venice in 1589 for divination (and not just the lighthearted variety).
It seems to me as well that attention should now be focused on the 16th century (and perhaps earlier) in answering questions concerning the origin of alternative uses of playing cards and Tarot.
The 18th century, while obviously still the temporal focus for the beginning of our modern, occult, versions of Tarot, must now be seen as an inheritor of an already long-established tradition of Tarot magick (which most likely includes Tarot divination).
