Amazon Review
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.
