All Creatures Now are Merry-Minded
(Note: Video length is 10 minutes, but the song ends between the 2 and 3 minute mark. I do not know why they left the extra time up there) Though the video maker does not list the ensemble singing, I’m sure it’s the Tallis Scholars from their English Madrigals (plus 7 English Anthems) CD.
The madrigal is Bennet’s contribution to The Triumphs of Oriana. As per wikipedia
Every madrigal in the collection contains the following couplet at the end: “Thus sang the shepherds and nymphs of Diana: long live fair Oriana” (the word “Oriana” often being used to refer to Queen Elizabeth).
The Arbor Consort has “All Creatures Now” in our repertoire, along with another of Bennet’s pieces, “Weep, O Mine Eyes”.
