This highly-praised study of Monteverdi and his works
combines clear social and historical perspectives with critical
insight into his music. In relating Monteverdi to the musical
activity of his time, Denis Arnold reveals a forward-looking
genius whose music is now receiving long-overdue
appreciation. The text and appendices of this edition were fully
revised by Tim Carter, who added a new chapter taking
account of recent scholarship.
