Lament for April 15

The Randolph Singers; David Randolph, Conductor

This record contains the first fruits of a plan that had its inception in the mind of David Randolph as long ago as 1944. It was in that year that he organized The Randolph Singers, a group of five musicians devoted to the performance of Madrigals. Throughout the intervening years, during which they brought to the attention of the public — through their numerous concert tours and recordings — literally hundreds of early English, French and Italian Madrigals, it was their hope to create a rebirth of interest in this intimate form of music, but in the idiom of our own day. How well that hope has been realized is indicated by the fact that up to January, 1956, no fewer than twenty-seven modern Madrigals were composed especially for The Randolph Singers, of which thirteen are presented on this disc.

This title from the CRI LP back catalog has been carefully transferred from the original master tape, and is now available from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).

We have preserved the original CRI LP catalog number for this title, preceded by the prefix NWCRL, to distinguish previously unavailable back catalog titles from those later reissued by CRI on compact disc. Please refer to the liner notes for information about the program.

***Please note that the newly-digitized CRI LP titles are priced at $12.99 (multiples excepted) and are not included in any of the special offers.***
