Madrigirls is a female chamber choir, based at the University of Glasgow and directed by Katy Lavinia Cooper and Catriona Hutchinson. The names "University of Glasgow Madrigirls", "Glasgow University Madrigirls" and "Glasgow Madrigirls" are or have also been used, plus optional "the" before each or any of these. (Not to be confused with a London-based trio calling themselves "The Madrigirls".) Formed in the year 2000, originally to sing early music, Madrigirls number between 20 and 25 singers and have a large repertoire. Their interests range over early, medieval, renaissance, traditional, shapenote (Sacred Harp) and world music, mostly in original arrangements by Katy Cooper (sometimes billed as Katy L Cooper or Katy Lavinia Cooper), as well as new compositions by her or modern composers such as Frank La Rocca (b.1951).

Their repertoire includes the entire music of the Llibre Vermell, a fourteenth-century book of pilgrim songs associated with the monastery of Montserrat in Catalonia. Some use is made of percussion and hurdy-gurdy (played by Allan Wright) but most songs are unaccompanied. Madrigirls have been featured on BBC Radio Scotland (Radio Cafe, February 2007), BBC Radio 3 (The Choir, June 2007) and BBC1 TV (Fiona's Story, August 2008). Their first album, Nevermas, is a fascinating mix of medieval songs, English, Welsh and Scottish folk, 17th-century Scottish partsongs, madrigals and Eastern European music. It is available from CDBaby.com as CD or mp3 downloads.

Some clips of Madrigirls in action can be seen on YouTube and Flickr (where there is a Madrigirls pool). Their official websites are at www.madrigirls.org.uk and www.myspace.com/madrigirls, and they have a Facebook group and a Twitter account at www.twitter.com/Madrigirls. Beware of abandoned out-of-date websites still online eg www.wix.com/madrigirls/madrigirls and http://www.madrigirls.org.uk/diary.html. Read more on Last.fm.
