    As a singer for whom early music has been a significant part of my repertoire since college I wanted to know about the music I was singing This book was a great survey of Renaissance music with just the level of depth I was looking for It reminded me of things I'd learned but also taught me about the compositional devices and techniues the composers used The writing itself is also uite good I never felt that the text dragged me down even in areas I was less familiar with or interested in eg instrumental music of the era If you are a fairly experienced musician or student of music and you want to understand the characteristics and historical development of the major composers and eras of Renaissance music this volume is a great place to start NB I read the 1976 first edition; there is an updated second edition
