    Elizabethan choral works

    A selection of madrigals, motets etc, many of which I sang in the days before ciggies ruined me voice! I'll be adding more, feel free to add your findings also, including recordings you may have made of your choral group/choir.

    Some Youtube links and PDF scores where available from WIMA

    John Dowland, Come again

    William Byrd, Vigilate,


    John Bennet, Weep O mine eyes
