What Madness! The virus has bested us again, the madness of it all! We’ll channel our
frustrations by exploring tunes that depict madness (La Follia!), drunkenness, and sadness.
Composers that have gone mad? Sure, we’ve got those, too! Join the Portland Recorder
Society and revel in some “mad” music that will leave you feeling delighted. Click on the music below to print out the part you wish to play (you can print all if you wish).
