Overview

English, French, and Italian Madrigals

One of the enduring legacies of The Deller Consort was its role in the rediscovery of the madrigal, and while the talents of Alfred Deller as a singer and a scholar are very much in evidence on this six-CD set, the results are anything but scholarly. The spirit here is operatic and romantic; the madrigal in the hands of Deller and his Consort is a four minute opera, with great emotions and humor, pathos and agony.

Similar to Volume 1: Folk Songs and Ballads, this extensive set of English, French, and Italian madrigals includes recordings that are not subject to the whims of performance practice -- these interpretations are timeless, charming, and astonishingly virtuosic. Most of this material has been out of print for over a decade, and much of it was never released in the United States. From the Label
