There may be as many as more madrigals by Arcadelt which survive anonymously in manuscript sources. Of all the early madrigalists, he was by far the most universal in his influences as well as his appeal; and his influence on others was enormous.

Arcadelt brought the madrigal form to its early maturity.

Stylistically his madrigals are melodious and simple in structure, singable, and built on a clear harmonic basis, usually completely diatonic. The music is often syllablic, and while it sometimes uses repeated phrases, is almost always through-composed as opposed to the contemporary chanson, which was often strophic.

Unlike later generations of madrigal composers, Arcadelt did not expect professional singers to be the only consumers of his work; anyone who could read notes could sing his madrigals. Another poet he set was the Marquis Alfonso d'Avalos, who wrote the words to his most single famous composition, and one of the most enduring of the entire 16th century: According to Alfred Einsteinwriting in The Italian Madrigal, "… he is content with a simple, tender declamation of the text, depending upon the elementary and magical power of music, of harmony, which veils this poem in a cloak of sublime and distant sentimentality.

Arcadelt has conferred upon this composition a quality which is very rare in sixteenth-century secular music, namely durability …" [26] The texture is mostly homophonic, with a hint of fauxbourdon in the harmony; the subject matter is erotic, with the orgasmic "thousand deaths" portrayed by a rising fourth figure in close imitation ; brief bits of word-painting occur, such as the arcadelt il bianco e dolce cigno of a flattened seventh on "piangendo"; and the musical phrases overlap the lines of verse, blurring the formal division of the line, a technique known in music, as in poetry, as enjambment.

The chanson was by nature a more stable form, often strophic and with patterned repetition; the madrigal, on the other hand, was usually through-composed.

Most of his chansons are syllablic and simple, with brief bursts of polyphonic arcadelt il bianco e dolce cigno, occasionally canonic, and with sections imitating the note nere style of the madrigal — the fast "black notes" producing the effect of a patter song.

Some of his chansons were actually contrafacta of his madrigals the same music, printed with new words French instead of Italian. This elegant innuendo is matched by an utterly graceful musical setting.

Most of the piece is homophonic, which highlights chordal progressions such as the surprising harmony on the word "piangendo" "weeping". The conclusion, however, discussing the wish for a thousand such deaths each day, is set imitatively in all voices, as if to evoke the passionate repetition of desire.

Text by Alfonso d"Avalos Il bianco e dolce cigno Cantando more, et io Piangendo giungo al fin del viver mio. Morte, che nel morire Mi empie di gioia tutto di desire.

Se nel morir altro dolor non sento Di mille morte il di sarei contento.
