For early music scholars like myself, a book like this can be invaluable. Early music is hardly a subject that merits sales at the top of the best-seller list, and so any book dealing with this fascinating field is a pearl beyond price. In this one, the essays are clear and readable, and the information in them can be vital for a scholar seeking the facts.

Yet this book - an average-sized volume (327 pages, including the index) containing only a few essays - was priced new at $160! That's a bit much - and, to my mind, exploitive, because of the dearth of books on this subject, and the resulting desperation of poor scholars trying to put together a library of their own. Luckily, I managed to find a used one for $45 - but that's still too expensive.

But if you have the money to fork out, and want to collect your own library of early music, the information is fascinating, and the authors write in readable styles (some of them like a mystery novel) so the essays won't put you to sleep the way too many scholarly books can. If nothing more, see if you can find a copy at the nearest University music library. It's worth the trip.
