Timothy McGee, editor, with A. G. Rigg and David N. Klausner. Singing Early Music: The Pronunciation of European Languages in the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance

Rice, Eric

Singing Early Music is designed primarily as a practical handbook for performers based on sound linguistic scholarship. It offers important advice to singers and choral conductors, and it is of interest to musicologists and literary scholars as well. Much of the information presented was not easily accessible to performers prior to the book's publication, and this information has been gathered and presented in a clear, concise, interesting, and, above all, convenient fashion. This is an eminently useful book, but it needs to be used with discretion.
