Amyntas With his Phyllis Fair, by John Farmer, sung by Ottawa's Stairwell Carollers - YouTube video.

Spring peony
Today selection for Tutti Thursday is "Amyntas With his Phyllis Fair", by John Farmer. This selection from our Youtube video vault is an English Madrigal about young love published in 1599.

Did you know that Madrigals were the pop songs of the Renaissance? Music sheets  were spread on the tables in the pubs so that everyone could sing along while drinking. Good times!

Audio: Tom Barnes.  Recorded at St. Barnabas Church, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, May 31st, 2014.

Videographers: Gert-Jan van Heuzen, Kevin Millington.
Editing: Pierre Massie
