Balletts (1595) Selection II (5 Pieces) - 5 Scores

Balletts (1595) Selection II (5 Pieces) - 5 Scores

Balletts (1595) Selection II (5 Pieces) - 5 Scores composed by Thomas Morley (1557-1602). For SSATB recorders, strings or voices. String Quartets, Quintets etc., Recorder Quintets. Thesaurus Musicus. Choral or Vocal Music. 5 Scores. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPMTM68).

Thomas Morley ( c. 1557 - 1602) was an English composer, theorist, editor and organist of the Renaissance, and the foremost member of the English Madrigal School. He was the most famous composer of secular music in Elizabethan England, and the composer of the only surviving contemporary settings of verse by Shakespeare. Morleys famous Balletts to Five Voyces are sufficiently well-known to make any new edition appear redundant. However, we should not lose sight of the fact that Morleys pieces, together with the balletti of Gastoldi on which they were based (see nos. 37 and 44 of the present series) were intended for instrumentalists as well as singers. Generally speaking, modem editions have been aimed at the latter, who do not have to worry about page turns. A further five pieces from Morleys collection can be found in no. 68 of the present series. The 1595 edition also appeared in Italian, which is not surprising, given that most of Morleys pieces, including the five printed here, were based very closely on Gastoldis Balletti of 1591. In the Italian edition each piece appears with the text of the model used by Morley. However, these pieces are much more than mere arrangements of Gastoldis music, for Morley is not at all slavish in his treatment of his models. Often he takes the rhythmic pattern of Gastoldis piece and provides new melody and harmony, while in other cases he preserves some of the origial melodic contour. - BT CONTENTS: Shoot, False Love, I care not (II) Now is the month of Maying (III) My bonny lass she smileth (VII) Those dainty daffodillies (XV) I love, alas, I love thee.
