Originally titled Nobili Spettatori, this lively madrigal by Italian composer Adriano Banchieri has been adapted by Patrick Liebergen to include an optional piano accompaniment and English text. Students enjoy this piece for its melodic singable lines. Directors will enjoy a piece that is relatively easy to put together but is also flexible enough to accommodate varying levels of ability.
