Kingston Madrigal Society

The following is the introduction and list of 899 madrigals from Appendix B of the book "The English Madrigal Composers" by Edmund Horace Fellowes, published in 1921, transcribed by Neil Hawes. This is not the contents of the library of Kingston Madrigal Society! The numbers in the "Part book source" indicate the volume number and page number in the published part books of that composer.

The following index may be found convenient for purposes of reference. It constitutes a complete list of all the English madrigals printed in the Elizabethan part-books. The compositions of the lutenist-composers, for example Dowland and Ford, are not included here, nor are those of Martin Peerson, since these are not in a strict sense madrigals. Settings of words from the Psalms or other passages from the Bible, whether metrical or not, are also omitted from this Index. Those madrigals are marked with an asterisk which were printed in the original editions in separate sections or parts; and those printed here in italics are the second or subsequent parts of such compositions. It should here be repeated that the composers apparently desired to leave it optional to perform separately the single sections of those madrigals which they deliberately divided into two or more parts and numbered independently in their volumes or 'Sets'.
