Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book is replete with excerpts, facsimiles of the original manuscripts, and charts summarizing the form of many works discussed; nearly every page includes a graphic or illustration. This gives the text more readability than other similar publications. A work of monumental scholarship, Alwes's publication is valuable as a textbook, as a quick reference, or as a continuous narrative detailing choral music's dramatic history."—Choral Scholar
