About this title


The madrigal is one of the most uniquely Italianate art forms of the Renaissance. This fact is perhaps still not fully recognized by the many musicians who tend to equate the word 'madrigal' with the output of the English school.

This study attempts to redress the balance by making the development of the madrigal in Italy its core, and treating Italianate madrigal schools in northern Europe as the offshoots they undoubtedly were. The aim has been to give a general survey of the musical development of the madrigal, with limited emphasis on the complex literary background.

Contents: Frottola and madrigal -- The early Italian madrigalists -- Seriousness and mastery -- Music for entertainment and delight -- Mannerism and the late Italian madrigal -- The lighter forms -- The madrigal north of the Alps -- The madrigal in England -- The Italian madrigal after 1600.

Includes source-list of madrigals, bibliography, and index.
