Choir Secular (SATB choir)
Composed by Thomas Morley (1557-1602). Arranged by Kirby Shaw. Choral Octavo; Masterworks. Alfred Choral Designs. Madrigal; Masterwork Arrangement; Renaissance; Secular. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.46370).

Item Number: AP.46370

An intriguing mix of old and new, Kirby's treatment of the Thomas Morley madrigal retains the original vocal parts in dancing counterpoint, while adding a fresh rhythmic refrain at the beginning and end. With just a shaker accompaniment, this spritely a cappella arrangement builds ensemble skills such as intonation, flexibility, balance, and blend.
A cappella; Contest/Festival.
