THE TRIUMPHS OF ORIANA:
The Birth of the English Madrigal
When a collection of Italian madrigals entitled Musica Transalpina (Music from Across the Alps) was published in London in 1588, no
one could have foreseen the craze that it set off in the British Isles.
Thoroughly charmed by their Italian counterparts, British composers set out to emulate them, and the English madrigal was born.
Just 13 years later, the greatest of the English madrigal collections, The Triumphs of Oriana, was published in London by Thomas Morley, in honor of Queen Elizabeth I.

At turns playful, sensual, tender – and even a bit naughty – these little gems are a beloved part of our shared musical inheritance.
Come hear the Desert Chorale in delightful vocal chamber music from both sides of the Alps.
