Madrigale Spirituale

   Polyphonic setting of an Italian devotional text for unaccompanied voices, usually not strophic. Vergine {}Sacra of Sebastiano Festa, published in 1526, is an early example. Thereafter, its development paralleled that of its much more famous secular counterpart, with contributions from most major madrigal composers, including some contrafacta. Generally they were sung by small groups of well-educated amateurs, particularly clerics, but they were also known in the early oratorio devotions late in 16thcentury Rome.
