Editorial Reviews


"Authoritative...monumental...invaluable...enviably thorough...Kurtzman succeeds in offering a quantum leap forward of the greatest significance."--Music and Letters

"Kurtzman has distilled his encyclopedic knowledge of early seventeenth-century Italian liturgical music....Although centered on the Vespers, the discussion touches on many subjects that will hold the attention of anyone interested in early seventeenth-century Italian sacred music. What Kurtzman has done, then, is to use one of the great (and problematic) masterpieces of music to shed light on an entire repertory....This book is a major contribution to the scholarship not only of Monteverdi's Vespers, but also of North Italian sacred music of the early part of the seventeenth century." --Journal of the American Musicological Society

About the Author

Kurtzman is Professor of Music at Washington University in St. Louis.
