Fifty essays comment on the social, historical, theoretical, and performance contexts of the music and musicians of the period to offer fresh perspectives on musical styles, research sources, and performance practices of the medieval and Renaissance periods.
Tess Knighton is a lecturer in music history at Cambridge University and the editor of Early Music. David Fallows teaches at the University of Manchester and is the author of Dufay (1982) and Book and Music Review Editor of Early Music.
