Editorial Reviews


Cole has provided a useful and innovative model for further approaches to the study of earlier music. This book is thus to be recommended not only to admirers of Tallis, but to all with an interest in the history of English music. FONTES AR TIS MUSICAE (Cole) pursues an intriguing trail (...). Students of Tudor church music will find much scholarly detail in Cole's vignettes. Anyone with an interest in the Victorians will enjoy learning about this interaction of national, religious and cultural identity, and glimpse the sense of adventure that some of them felt in the quest for musical treasure from England's glorious past. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENTThis book is a cause for rejoicing.Cole's central narrative (is) compelling.a tremendously important, stimulating book which reconfigures one's sense of the English musical landscape and it should spark new directions in Tallis scholarship. EARLY MUSICA valuable addition to the small body of literature on Tallis. CHURCH MUSIC QUARTERLYI recommend (Cole's) contribution to the available literature on Tallis wholeheartedly. MUSICAL TIMES (Peter Phillips)The arguments raised in this book are complex...yet Cole sets them out clearly and cogently. She has a knack for untangling complicated issues...this book is a pleasure to read. MUSICOLOGY AUSTRALIAA fascinating, scholarly study which causes the reader to challenge his or her own received much a great read as it is a learned book, and I cannot praise author or publisher highly enough for its timely publication. CHOMBEC NewsExceptional in its care, comprehensiveness and logic. Insofar as reception history is a matter of uncovering the cultural politics that shaped the musical values we have inherited, it is difficult to imagine a job better done.
