Having heard from several parents present on Mondays at our homeschooling co-op that they had loved singing madrigals in college, and how much they would love to sing them again, I opened up my big mouth and offered to run a group sing after lunch for whomever would like to come join in on the fun.
This being my fourth music group of the day (9:oo a.m.: assisting with Revels, in residence at the co-op this fall; 2. 11:15 a.m.: co-directing the co-op's Sing Along Chorus; 3. 12:45 p.m.: Madrigal Club and 4. 7:30 p.m.: one of the highlights of my week, the local Festival chorus I get to go and attend as a grown-up without children attached to some part of me), I hearby declare Monday to be "Music Monday," from now until whenever it stops being so. And in honor of the first ever (on this blog, anyway) Music Monday, I give you a madrigal from the late great John Dowland (1563-c.1626), as sung by those quintessential vocalists of all vocalists, The King's Singers. Enjoy!
