This book is a collection of madrigals composed in England during the late 16th and early 17th Century and contains more than fifty pieces all in a handy, vocal study score. These part-songs are examples of some of the finest English music ever written and are possibly more superior in truth and expressiveness than the madrigals composed in Italy, where the form was invented and flourished over a long period. This impressive volume features works by composers such as Michael Cavenish, William Byrd, John Wilbye, Orlando Gibbons and Thomas Bateson. All the madrigals included have been set for diiferent voices and choral arrangements.
