Italia Mia!: Madrigal Mystery Tour. The Italian madrigal in the 16th century was emotional, witty, daring, celebratory, passionate, sensual, experimental, and ... gorgeous! TEMP's stellar ensemble of singers will perform both well-known and innovative works by Lassus, da Rore, Marenzio, Monteverdi, and more, featuring Verdelot's touching title madrigal, Italia Mia. These four-to-eight-part works are ideally suited for the intimate and lovely acoustic of First English Lutheran Church, just north of the UT campus.
