I couldn’t write one madrigal, let alone all the pieces Thomas Morley wrote. That said, I’m still going to poke a little fun at him.
“Hark! A calendar! April, nay but we did to write that last year… ah, but May! Brilliant!”
Last week we listened to “April is in my Mistress Face”, so this week, let’s enjoy “Now is the Month of Maying”, both by our English friend with the dapper mustache, Thomas Morley.
Thanks Morley, and thanks King’s Singers for this fun welcome to the month. ^_^ Next Monday, something non-English. I promise.
