Madrigals are “unaccompanied contrapuntal part-songs on a secular poetic theme”... the theme usually being Love, Sex, Death or Dancing (much like all popular music).

We are a small group of singers who particularly enjoy madrigals of the English school, c1580-1625, which were written mostly for domestic entertainment - chilling in the pre-Netflix era - but we also perform continental madrigals and some much later items.

Late Elizabethan England saw a great outpouring of composing talent, and our aim is to bring this wonderful material to modern ears…
