Jacob Handl (Gallus) (1550-1591): Madrigals from his Harmonie morales

Handl, a Slovenian composer resident in Austria and Bohemia, was one of the most skilful contrapuntists of his time and a notable composer of polychoral works. He may originally have been called Petelin (‘rooster’) in Slovenia, of which Handl is the German diminutive, and ‘Gallus‘ the Latin equivalent.
