A cracking piece of music – Margot, Labourez les Vignes (1554).
By Jacques Arcadelt (1507-1568), a prolific Franco-Flemish composer whose work was published throughout Europe.
In his youth Arcadelt was sent to Italy, where he wrote plenty of devotional music, but he also spent time on the secular side, bringing the madrigal form to its early maturity. On his return to France he concentrated on chansons.
The Tudor connection? Nothing direct, but Arcadelt did have an influence on Elizabethan composers.
