In These Delightful Pleasant Groves
Music by Henry Purcell / arr. Russell L. Robinson
Alfred Archive Edition: Alfred Choral Designs
3-Part Mixed, a cappella
Russell Robinson has carefully edited this 17th Century madrigal for today's 3-part choirs. The key has been lowered a fourth, allowing part I to sing in a comfortable, one-octave (D-D) range. It also provides part III (the changed or changing boys' voices) with a limited 6-note range. Open score means easy reading for young choirs. Includes historical and performance notes. Introduce your middle school or junior high choir to madrigal singing with this well arranged work.
