3 Madrigals

By Jacques (Jacob) Arcadelt

3 Madrigals

3 Madrigals composed by Jacques (Jacob) Arcadelt. Edited by Iain Fenlon. For ATTB or SAAT voices or instruments. Early Music. Published by Antico Edition (WW.AE08).

Arcadelt was one of the most important and popular early renaissance madrigalists, and his first collection (including the international 'hit' Il bianco e dolce cigno) went through fifty-five editions between 1538 and 1654. These four-voice works from that same book, Ancidetemi pur, Io dico che fra voi and Il ciel che rado, give a good idea of the stylistic range of the first-generation madrigal. For ATTB or SAAT soloists; performable also by a small choir or by an instrumental consort.

    Italian madrigals have been my favorites. I have sang and conducted madrigals a-capella groups for more than 20 years both here in Floridaand overseas. The 3 Madrigals by Jaques Arcadelt are among the best Italian madrigals ever written.
