For SATB with optional double bass and optional piano.
Rutter's music captures the varied moods of Shakespeare's words, with their rapture, sorrow, humour, and vitality, in a way that makes these classic madrigal texts come alive for contemporary audiences. These pieces may be performed individually or as a five-movement suite. Numbers 1, 4, and 5 are also published for upper voices and keyboard as Three Birthday Madrigals.

It was a lover and his lass
Draw on, sweet night
Come live with me
My true love hath my heart
When daisies pied
