April is in my mistress' face

April is in my mistress' face ist ein vierstimmiges englisches Madrigal von Thomas Morley. Es ist eines der bekanntesten und zudem kürzesten Stücke der englischen Madrigalmusik. Es wurde 1594 veröffentlicht. Der Text basiert auf einem italienischen Gedicht von Livio Celiano, das 1587 auch von Orazio Vecchi vertont wurde. Der englische Text des Madrigals lautet:

April is in my mistress' face,
And July in her eyes hath place;
Within her bosom is September,
But in her heart a cold December.
