Four Romantic Madrigals is a new edition of selected madrigals (for unaccompanied SATB choir) composed by John Stainer (1840–1901). Jeremy Dibble of Durham University brings Stainer’s expressive and enticing part-songs to a wider audience by presenting them in modern notation. This edition coincides with the release of the CD, English Romantic Madrigals (Hyperion, CDA68140), an exciting new recording of works by Stainer, Sir Hubert Parry, Elgar and other composers of nineteenth-century English part-songs performed by Rupert Gough and the Royal Holloway Choir.
