SATTB SATTB Scoring legend Secular ISMN M-2056-0712-8
A splendid 10-voice madrigal - in the source described as a 'Bacchanale'. The first two verses dutifully praise Bacchus, Hymen and Venus, but in the third verse the chorus reveal their intention of doing something about them - especially the venereal rites!
