Notes & Reviews:

"The English Madrigal grew out of the 16th century Italian style and became the forerunner of popular small group singing such as glees, barbershop and part songs that we all know today based on the joy of performance: ideal examples are offered here by Britain's expert group, Pro Cantione Antiqua` - Peter Avis
