Editorial Reviews


Medievalists working in the areas of musicology, literature, and codicology have already come to appreciate Earp's many scholarly contributions to Machaut studies. With the appearance of this volume, collective gratitute can only increase. -- Romance Philology
The volume is completed by three detailed indexes: an index of manuscripts; a general index of names, places, and subjects; and an index of titles, first lines, and refrains. These increase the usefulness of the volume. -- Romance Philology
This immensely useful and painstakingly thorough guide to Machaut studies will be invaluable for Machaut scholars, and indeed for all those working on fourteenth-century French music, poetry, or manuscripts. In one handy volume, Earp has provided detailed descriptions of all known Machaut manuscripts, a biographical sketch outlining all that is known of Machaut's life, and a meticulously annotated bibliography and discography. Thorough cross-referencing and indexing makes the volume extremely user-friendly, notwithstanding the mass of material that it contains. -- Romance Philology
The catalogue of manscripts is fully comprehensive, providing descriptions and complete bibliographic references not only for the large collections devoted to Machaut's complete works, but also for any manuscript containing any Machaut piece. Such a catalogue will prove an invaluable starting point for future editorial or codicological projects...of immense value for anyone contemplating an iconographic study. By collating all manuscript illuminations and grouping them by text, Earp makes it possible to view at a glance the illustration of any given text across the manuscript tradition. -- Romance Philology
Absolutely indispensable. Anyone with a serious interest in scholarship on Machaut could do no better than to invest in this book. -- Notes
Another volume in an invaluable series. It is a book with 'Must Buy' written all over it. -- Early Music Today
Earp has packed his book with useful information for the student of Machaut's life and works and has in addition provided a very adequate biography of the composer-poet. Anyone with a serious interest in Machaut will want to use this resource manual. -- Brio
This is a balanced, generous, and above all rich collection of material. -- Maney

Format: Hardcover
A mine of information on Guillaume de Machaut's music. Biographic elements, works, editions, chronology, essays, single articles are easily found in this remarkable guide. As it is a recent edition, all major sources are included. A really well-written book. Medieval music lovers will enjoy reading it.
