English Madrigals come from what many people consider to be one of the richest periods of English composition. Composers like Byrd, Gibbons, Morley and Weelkes are represented in this fine collection edited by Philip Ledger as well as many other lesser known composers of the time. As well as featuring 60 Madrigals the book contains some very interesting performance notes.
