Madrigals And Partsongs
Edited by Clifford Bartlett
Madrigals and Partsongs gathers together nearly sixty of the finest examples of the secular choral repertoire into one volume. Due space is given to the magnificent sixteenth-century madrigals of England and Italy, with favourite items by Gibbons and Morley placed alongside less familiar works by Lassus, Marenzio, and Weelkes. German and French pieces are also represented. Pieces by Haydn and Schubert lead to the nineteenth-century repertoire. Ranging from the late fifteenth to the twentieth century, and spanning all the major European countries, this is a masterly survey suitable for all choirs.
