Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for anyone interested in early music. The beginner will find handy, concise definitions of most of the common terms, styles, instruments, and forms, as well as biographies of major composers. The more advanced early music enthusiast will find it an invaluable source for program notes and ideas, and teachers and ensemble directors will make much use of it as well.
As an aside, it's GREAT to see that this book's definition of the period known as "Early Music" ends with the time of Monteverdi.
