This is the place to come to learn about the manuscripts, about the copying of text and music, about forms, rhetorical devices, compositional techniques and biographies... a down-to-earth treatment of the discernible facts, ordered according to the types of evidence that survives. It is a book to sober up the discipline." --Times Literary Supplement "Specialists and general readers alike will be grateful to have this fine book ..." -Choice "The book is the fruit of many years of research the information collected, sifted and made available to scholars will be very useful indeed." --The Medieval Review 1/2The Music of the Troubadours studies the 315 extant melodies of the troubadours of Occitania, whose poetry and music reflect the social and political milieu of the late medieval Mediterranean world. "[I]nvaluable for musicologists and troubadour scholars interested in knowing about the 'whole song', and it also provides an excellent introduction to troubadour music for the historian, philologist or, indeed, anyone with a passing interest." --David Cashman, Parergon "It is a down-to-earth treatment of the discernible facts, ordered according to the type of evidence that survives. It is a book to sober up the discipline." --Daniel Leech-Wilkinson,Times Literary Supplement "[A] welcome guide for the growing number of performers wishing to recreate these magical treasures from the medieval Midi." --Donna Mayer-Martin, Notes"
