An interesting new cd

Ahh, sweet memories of my youth, when the English Madrigal was the center of the universe. Just finished giving a rave to Anthony Rooley's 1982 (the year I graduated high school, eeek!) recording of madrigals and ayers by Thomas Morley, perhaps the most famous if not the most gifted of English madrigalists.

Ah what sweet music to my ears. If indeed there is a perfect vocal art form, it's the madrigal, and if there is a perfect group to sing them, it's the Consort of Musicke. Ah thank you Evelyn and Emma for your dulcet tones!
