Canti d'Amor is a collection of fifteen brief love madrigals for a cappella chorus using poems from James Joyce's Chamber Music. The madrigals are grouped in three sets of five and, in keeping with Joyce's penchant for weaving threads of musical allusion into his literary fabrics, each group is subtly informed by an Irish song. In as much as these settings qualify as madrigals, they are indebted to Monteverdi's Canti d'Amor.
