"This volume stands as an admirable update to an already-informative how-to manual for performing Renaissance music.... The present edition comprises 31 essays by noted scholar-performers, including Bruce Dickey, Paul O'Dette, Anthony Rooley, Alexander Blachly, and Alejandro Planchart.... All the essays are thorough yet not too in-depth, concise but not superficial, and all offer solid starting points for further exploration. This volume... should be helpful to both performers and directors.... Recommended." ―Choice
"I highly recommend this book as a practical and necessary reference work for anyone dealing with the scholarly study or performance practice of this musical time period." ―Fontes Artis Musicae, 2010:2

I've just started an early music ensemble, so I speak from experience! :) I'd recommend it to anyone who's planning to take performance of Renaissance music seriously.
Another point is that the book is very practical and in the text it cites many other texts to the people that want to deepen in the subject.
