      An excellent series of themed madrigal selections. I am not a singer - I purchased this for the keyboard reductions - but the parts appear well laid out. Each part has its own line with the vocal range of each piece marked at the start. Translations into English are provided where necessary. The keyboard reductions (provided for most of the pieces) are well arranged & comfortable to play. The editorial notes offer a lot of information in a well researched & approachable manner. My only criticism of this series is that the print - especially the keyboard reductions - is rather small; but you do get around 20 pieces for £8.95 in a quality publication. Also, the pages stay open - hooray!
