This is the first of three programmes of madrigals recorded by the choir and soloists of the Italian Swiss Radio in their studio at Lugano. The choir, which will be heard in the last programme, was founded in 1937 by Edwin Lohrer , on the pattern of the Concerto Italiano ' of the Renaissance; it was formed with a view to reproducmg the original style of performance at sixteenth- and seventeenth-century music, especially that of Monteverdi. The works have been edited by Dr. Lohrer, and these three performances were given under his artistic direction.

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
