    Default Thomas Morley (1593): Canzonets To Three Voices

    Thomas Morley (1557-1602): Canzonets To Three Voyces

    1. Lady Those Eyes, Those Eyes Of Yours - 0:00
    2. Love Learns By Laughter First To Speake - 1:49
    3. See Mine Own Sweet Jewel - 3:24
    4. Spring-Time Mantleth Every Bough - 4:51

    I have long been a big fan of Morley's madrigals and canzonets and have previously recorded the complete set of his canzonets for two voices. Here is a selection of six of his canzonets for three. The arrangements are by Steve Hendricks, from:

    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin (x2)
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar

    Except "Springtime Mantleth Every Bough":

    Thanks for the kind words -- I love Morley, and these are fun pieces to play on mandolin.

    Thomas Morley (1557-1602): "O Sleep Fond Fancy" & "Love Learns By Laughing First To Speak"
    From "Canzonets or Little Short Songs to Three Voyces" (1602)


    I have just made another recording of two of Morley's canzonets to three voices, this time using the closest I have to a renaissance cittern -- my two 1920s Thuringian waldzithers. Both of these are originally for two treble and one tenor voice, which I have recorded as an instrumental trio, using my 1920s 10-string waldzither in CGDAE for the two treble parts and my 1925 Zimmermann 9-string waldzither in (G)DAEA for the tenor part.
