Editorial Reviews


Winner of the American Musicological Society's Robert M. Stevenson Award for Outstanding Scholarship in Iberian Music, 2009 A real page-turner. . . Illustrates how an interdisciplinary approach is essential if we are to take our understanding of the randomly preserved remnants of cultural history to a new and higher level. MUSIC & LETTERS (Tess Knighton) Scholars such as (Candelaria), informed, analytical and well-balanced, deserve to reach as large a number of the interested academic world as possible. BIBLIOTHEQUE D'HUMANISME ET RENAISSANCE (Leonard R. N. Ashley) (An) impressive piece of historical detection...which successfully straddles the concerns of liturgy, polyphony, and manuscript illumination. (It) will stand as an intriguing contribution to a much-overlooked field. AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW (Iain Fenlon) The scope of the book. . . . makes this valuable reading for scholars in a wide variety of disciplines, while its lucid and clear writing style makes it accessible to anyone interested in Spanish cultural history, liturgy, or medieval and early-modern studies. SPECULUM (James Boyce, O.Carm.) The author is to be applauded for shining a much-needed spotlight on the vast corpus of similar Spanish and New World cantorales that until very recently have been regarded as 'of very little interest'. MUSIC LIBRARY ASSOCIATION NOTES (Michael Noone) Few (interdisciplinary) studies have been more compelling. . . . (Candelaria) is equally at home when dealing with the finer points of art history or the sometimes murky nature of the antiquities market. . . . (He) crafts a story that rivals good detective fiction. It even has a surprise at the end that involves the dark halls of the Spanish Inqusition. RENAISSANCE QUARTERLY (Michael B. O'Connor) The book is in many ways a detective story which identifies the MS's provenance and function by fascinating and devious approaches: I won't try to summarise it and spoil the story. . . . This study throws light not only on this particular MS but on the usage of the Rosary in Spanish politics and history. And there is a moral for art historians studying MSS with music and vice-versa: see beyond your own discipline. EARLY MUSIC REVIEW (Clifford Bartlett) . . . one of the most attractive and intriguing books on Spanish music history to reach the market. . . It is thoroughly to be recommended. EARLY MUSIC (Bernadette Nelson)
