5 Canzonets a 3 (1593) - 3 Scores
5 Canzonets a 3 (1593) - 3 Scores composed by Thomas Morley (1557-1602). For SAT recorders; or SAT instruments; or SAT voices. Recorder Trios, Miscellaneous Music. Early Music Library. Choral or Vocal Music. 3 Scores. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.EML0306).
These five pieces come from Thomas Morley's Canzanets or Little Short Songs to three voyces, originally published in London in 1593, though no. 5, Love learns by laughing, was not included in the first edition. In fact all five pieces here are printed after the reprint of 1606, which is preferable in a number of minor respects. Morley's pieces obviously take the canzonette of such north Italian musicians as Orazio Vecchi as their starting-point: the resemblance is particularly striking in Thirsis, let pity move thee, with its characteristic dotted rhythms. But there is perhaps more variety of mood and treatment in some of Morley's pieces than would find in a typical canzonetta. CONTENTS: See, mine own sweet jewel Farewell, disdainful Say, dear, will you not have me? Thiris, let pity move thee Love learns by laughing.
