Madrigals (released in the US as Love Songs for Madrigals and Madriguys) is the debut recording of the London-based a cappella group Swingle II, who were the immediate successors to the Paris-based Swingle Singers although the eight vocalists were all new. Ward Swingle arranged and adapted the music for the new group.
