Score and parts
The Silver Swan, My Heart to Thee Now Makes its Plea and Now is the Month of Maying make up this set of famous madrigals for 4 flutes. There are two slower melodies and one fast one to add variety to this suite. A piece could be played by itself or all three could be played together as a set. These simple vocal pieces are excellent to develop ensemble playing techniques such as balance and intonation.
Gibbons – The Silver Swan
Di Lasso – My Heart To Thee Now Makes It's Plea
Morley – Now Is The Month of Maying
