22 Madrigals, Venice 1536 (highly varied pieces) - Score by Verdelot. For various instruments (ATTB). Recorder Quartets. The Italian Madrigal. Score. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPMMA03).
Philippe Verdelot (? - 1552) was one of several non-Italian composers who settled in Italy and dominated the early development of the madrigal. He published nine volumes of madrigals, and his church music (Masses and motets) was published in anthologies all over Europe. Though many of his 4-part madrigals are chordal and song-like, as are Arcadelt's, he sometimes wrote in a more flowing, imitative style, as in the fine Madonna il tuo bel viso (included here). He also developed 5-part writing, varying the music with delicate contrasts of texture and careful attention to individual words or phrases, or enjoying the rich sonority of multiple low voices. This book contains all of the pieces from his 1536 edition. Includes preface, editorial and performance notes as well as complete text with English translations.
About The Italian Madrigal
From 1520 until the end of the 16th century, the madrigal was the focus of all that was new and exciting in Italian music. The new style and techniques developed then were imitated in many countries. De Lassus, da Rore, Ruffo & others are included in this series.
