'Madrigali di Monteverdi' is a collection of three madrigals by Claudio Monteverdi, arranged for flute choir by John E. Davis.
These three madrigals come from Monteverdi's 4th book of 5-voice madrigals in published in 1603. In their expressiveness one can hear the same flexibility of melodic line and mixed modal/tonal harmonies that characterize Monteverdi's first operatic works.
