What is a Madrigal? A madrigal is a form of choral music that was popular in the 16th century. Its origins were in Italy, but the custom of "madrigal dinners" is from England. They were feasts held during the twelve days of Christmas in various castles. Often the texts of madrigals were taken from poetry and were non-religious. The madrigal was really the "pop" music of its time!
