Editorial Reviews

Review

"Graham Strahle has done a superb job of providing music lovers - particularly enthusiasts of "early" music from the Renaissance and Baroque - with as comprehensive a dictionary (almost an encyclopedia) of musical terms in use during those 250 years or so as is now anywhere in print."
--Classical Net

Book Description

In this dictionary of early music, Graham Strahle has compiled definitions of musical terms in English as used and understood during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. He includes terms relating to instruments, performance, theory and composition and draws entirely from original printed and manuscript sources in Britain in the period 1500-1740.
