All the pretty quiristers of flight

Thomas Weelkes (1576 - 1623): The Nightingale, the Organ of delight, madrigale a 3 voci (pubbli­cato in Ayres or Phantasticke Spirits for Three Voices, 1608, n. 25). Collegium Vocale Bydgoszcz.

The Nightingale, the Organ of delight,
the nimble Lark, the Blackbird, and the Thrush,
and all the pretty quiristers of flight,
that chant their Music notes in ev’ry bush:
Let them no more contend who shall excel,
the Cuckoo is the bird that bears the bell.
