Editorial Reviews

Review


"Intriguing....This book contains a wealth of newly published archival information that will interest anyone concerned with ritual and performance circumstances of polyphonic music in women's religious orders during this important period in musical history."--Choice


"Kendrick's ability to navigate the larger currents of sixteenth-and seventeenth-century Milanese culture in order to contextualize the practices of the city's female monasteries is only one of the many strengths of this impressive study....Celestial Sirens is an essential addition to the library of any historian with an interest in the sacred music of Seicento Italy."--Journal of the American Musicological Society


"[Kendrick's] skills as social historian and musicologist are clearly evident and well exercised, making his work a sound contribution in both fields."--Church History


"...Kendrick provides the English-speaking reader with an erudite exploration into the subject of nuns' music...[his] praiseworthy achievement will prompt further exploration of this complex history and bring to light more of the compositions of these musical women inside the cloister."--The Catholic Historical Review
