Last updated: 17.12.19
Paperback: 352 pages
The ordinary musician has long known the book as a repository of human nature as well as of recondite learning. He can now read it and enjoy it as he would a novel or a play or a monograph on an aspect of social history. If he does so he will find the way made still easier for him in this edition by Mr. Thurston Dart's foreword, which is a brilliant summary of sixteenth-century musical practice in England. - Times [London] Literary Supplement
A descriptive and historical introduction precedes Morley's classic work on the fundamentals of music theory and composition that was originally published in 1597.
