Description

for unaccompanied SATBThe anonymous words for this piece, four brief reflections on the pleasures and insults of love, are drawn from sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English texts. The brevity and brilliance of the pieces, and the charm of the texts, will make them good encore pieces when performed individually. They are not difficult.show more

Review quote

Richard Proulx's madrigal cycle on anonymous early English texts ... adopts a musicular polyphonic style, witty and affective by turn. The four songs are nicely differentiated, and could be sung separately as well as comprising a coherent cycle. This is tricky music, though its challenges would repay the careful rehearsal required. Nicholas Bannan, Music Teacher April 2004show more
