We all know what a madrigal is, don’t we? Creatures somehow being ‘merry-minded’, fa-la-la, Merrie England and all that. A jolly part-song suitable for singing at home by competent amateurs.

We all know what a madrigal is, don’t we? Creatures somehow being ‘merry-minded’, fa-la-la, Merrie England and all that. A jolly part-song suitable for singing at home by competent amateurs. And for readers of Kingsley Amis’s Lucky Jim, the catalyst for an excruciating moment of barely averted social crash-and-burn for its main character. To anyone who remembers that episode, the very word ‘madrigal’ may be enough to induce a wince. But there’s more to the madrigal than all that.

Perhaps most convincing are the 19th-century madrigals of Robert Pearsall, of which Lay A Garland is the best known.
