Spanning the period from the early fifteenth century to the late
sixteenth, the anthology features all of the era's important forms
and many minor ones, including carols, motets, Mass movements,
Anglican services, a Magnificat setting, chansons, frottole,
Lieder, madrigals, and others. For each selection, the best
available edition has been reproduced; where no satisfactory
edition existed, the piece has been specially set for this volume.
Inclusive and practical, the Anthology of Renaissance Music is a
remarkable tool for students and teachers, for use with or without
its companion text.
