Three New Madrigals
Music by Jay Althouse
Alfred Archive Edition: Alfred Choral Designs
3-Part Mixed, a cappella
This trio of fresh, new, madrigals from Jay Althouse is a valuable addition to the choral repertoire of 3-part and SSA choirs. And at $1.85, it's quite a value. The first is in a traditional madrigal style, with a "fa la la" section and features and echo chorus. The second is lush and lovely, homophonic in nature, with a thought-provoking text. The third is up-tempo and includes an optional hand drum: it could be used as a processional or at a madrigal dinner. Use any or all of the three for concerts, contests, and adjudications.
