Jones, Robert: First Set of Madrigals (1607)


Jones was a famous lutenist and one of the musicians responsible for training the ‘children of St Paul’s’, who acted and sang in Elizabethan and Jacobean court plays. His 16 madrigals are mostly to texts about birds – birds merry, sweet, shrill, crowing or melancholic.
