Dormendo un giorno composed by Jacques (Jacob) Arcadelt. For SAT Recorders. Recorder Trios. Recorder Ensembles - Series RS. Level 3 - Moderate. Published by Hawthorns Music (MM.HARS108).
Arcadelt (1505-1568) was a contemporary of Verdelot and Willaert. He published motets and masses, but is chiefly known for his extensive output of chansons and madrigals. The frequency with which his works appear in contemporary manuscripts and printed anthologies shows him to have been very popular in his own time - in his first four books of madrigals, published by Gandane In 1539. He is described as most excellent and divine. He is known to have worked in Florence in the mid 1500s, and later to have been in the papal service and, from 1544 to have worked for the French royal chapel.
