Published in 1590, Thomas Watson’s Italian Madrigals Englished set the poet’s own texts, in English, to music by Marenzio, Nanino and Striggio. Like Musica transalpina, dating from two years earlier, the collection marked an important stage in the assimilation of Italian secular styles within English music.
