Notes from director Harley Muilenburg:
HSU Madrigal Singers present a program of Madrigals and songs of love from the 1600’s and the 1900’s. Featured in the program will be a madrigal by Thomas Morley with solos sung by Ana Ceja, Erin Corrigan, and Edrees Nassir. This Madrigal examines the nature of the pursuit of young love.
The singers will perform three excerpts from Patrick Hawes’s Song of Songs. Hawes’s choral writing is marked by flowing lines and beautiful harmonies. The keyboard accompaniment provides contrasting music rich with rhythmic drive. Frederick Delius’s Midsummer Song is an ABA romantic ballad with a Madrigal type la la section in the middle of the form. The singers will close the program with di Lasso’s beautiful madrigal O Eyes of my Beloved.
