Editorial Reviews


"More than the notation was different! ... fine addition ... " --Early Music News "All practising musicians with an interest in the baroque owe it to themselves to be exposed to the ideas contained in this book." -Continuo "This is a book from an excellent musician in the early field who turns out also to be a most persistent scholar ... " --Early Music " ... the book offers a vast quantity of data from a wide range of sources... George Houle is to be congratulated for his honest presentation of the entire spectrum." --Music Educators Journal
