In the year 1591 a collection of madrigals appeared in Antwerp at the Phalèse Printing firm. Collector was the English composer Peter Philips (c. 1560-1628), and the collection was dedicated to his patron Giulio Balbani, a wealthy Italian banker from Lucca (Italy), who was residing in Antwerp. That’s where Philips worked during his career in the Low Countries, in the town where he married his Flemish wife Cornelia de Mompère.
In the underlying collection are works of more Flemish composers like Cornelis Verdonck and André Pévernage. In the original title ‘madrigals for 4, 5, 6 and 8 voices’ are mentioned. The 4-voiced and
some of the 5-voiced works are available elsewhere on the internet. Here most of the 5-, 6-voiced madrigals and one 8-voiced madrigal are transcribed.
