Editorial Reviews


I found this book to be extremely useful...Walls' style is clear and at times extremely humorous...I would recommend this book heartily. EARLY MUSIC TODAY Undoubtedly makes a contribution to this contentious area. CLASSICAL MUSIC An invaluable addition to the literature. EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY MUSIC Make(s) many helpful observations on techniques of instrument-playing and transcribing.... Approachable and useful. THE MUSICAL TIMES Full of wit and clever turns of phrase, the book is a pleasure to read. NOTES
