Madrigal

As much as I love some Jazz, some Pop or some ethnic music (the Persians!, the ney!!!), I love classical music. 

Strange enough the further in time, the better I like it.  I generally prefer Baroque over Romantic composers and above all, I adore the polyphonists. 

The music they wrote in the 16th century is of unequalled heavenly beauty. 

The word 'madrigal' is even more poetic than 'nightingale'.  Certainly it's more exotic. 

No sensitive ear is unmoved when a madrigal is in the air.  It's the translation of eternity.
