Madrigal, a short lyrical poem, generally of an amorous character. Petrarch and Tasso in Italy, and Lodge, Carew, and Suckling in England, are named amongst the poets who excelled in this branch of the art, In music the term denotes a song of elaborate character, but without instrumental accompaniment, written in five or six parts. The musical madrigal arose in Flanders in the 15th century, and spread thence to Italy, England, and other countries.

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39
