Description
Like many Englishmen I had sung madrigals for pleasure – usually late at night with friends, after several glasses of wine. While these madrigals have their charm, and many are extremely beautiful, I found, as I began an extended exploration of the madrigal as a creative venture, that the richest source lies in the Italian Renaissance.

In 1998 I embarked on a project to write a series of madrigals, eventually deciding to collect them in ‘books’ in the manner of Italian madrigalists, such as Monteverdi or Gesualdo. The Second Book is for an unusual six-part group – the Scandinavian Trio Mediaeval (3 sopranos) and three tenors (John Potter plus two from the Hilliard Ensemble) – and sets Petrarch in the original 14th century Italian. I focused on those sonnets known as the Rima Sparsi ("scattered verses") and added one extra Petrarch setting – originally a radiophonic piece ("Marconi's Madrigal") for CBC's Marconi Day.

Contenu du texte: Benedetto sia 'l giorno e 'l mese et l' anno
Io son già stanco di pensar sì come
Quando dal proprio sito si rumove - Poi che voi et io più volte abbiam provato 
Non veggio ove scampar mi possa omai
Ponmi ove 'l sole occide i fiori et l' erba
Non Tesin, Po, Baro, Arno, Adige et Tebro
I' vidi in terra angelici costumi
O passi sparsi, o pensier vaghi et pronti
Una candida cerva sopra l' erba
Che fai? che pensi?
Amor, che meco al buon tempo ti stavi
Fu forse un tempo dolce
Morte à spento quel sol ch' abagliar suolmi
