A Very Merry Madrigal
Choir Secular (Women's Choir)
Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Christmas; Madrigal; Multicultural; Secular; Winter. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.28480).
Item Number: AP.28480
Based on a Traditional Glouchester Carol, words and music by Douglas E. Wagner.
Greet seasonal concertgoers with this festive original sung in the madrigal style. Joyful (and mostly step wise) "fa la la" refrains are sung following each of two welcoming verses, arranged with slightly different choral colors the second time. A wonderful Renaissance inspired SoundTrax sets the early music tone, or consider playing the keyboard part on a harpsichord synthesizer.
Recorded Acc. Available.
