French Madrigal attributed to Orlando di Lasso, arr., with English words, by Russell L. Robinson.
Although this work is sometimes referred to as a madrigal, it's really in the French chanson style: a polyphonic song popular in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The subject, typical of a chanson, is love; the English translation is I Give to You All of My Heart. Included are a performance notes and a pronunciation guide for the eight lines of French...or use the sensitive English text provided by Dr. Robinson. Well edited for young and developing 3-part choirs.
