By Jacques (Jacob) Arcadelt

ATTB or SAAT voices or instruments
Composed by Jacques (Jacob) Arcadelt. Edited by Iain Fenlon. Early Music. Published by Antico Edition (WW.AE08).

Item Number: WW.AE08

Arcadelt was one of the most important and popular early renaissance madrigalists, and his first collection (including the international 'hit' Il bianco e dolce cigno) went through fifty-five editions between 1538 and 1654. These four-voice works from that same book, Ancidetemi pur, Io dico che fra voi and Il ciel che rado, give a good idea of the stylistic range of the first-generation madrigal. For ATTB or SAAT soloists; performable also by a small choir or by an instrumental consort.

    Italian madrigals have been my favorites. I have sang and conducted madrigals a-capella groups for more than 20 years both here in Floridaand overseas. The 3 Madrigals by Jaques Arcadelt are among the best Italian madrigals ever written.
