The field of Renaissance music has been central to the interests of musicologists for at least a century. In recent decades a wealth of important writing has not only explored traditional issues but also vastly expanded the range of topics and approaches under consideration, so that our understanding of the music itself and of its uses and reception on the part of the Renaissance listener and performer has broadened. This series presents a selection of important articles on key issues in the field of Renaissance music written by leading scholars and musicologists. Each volume is edited by an expert in the field, whose selection of reprinted articles is accompanied by a specially written introduction and detailed bibliography. The volumes are arranged thematically beginning with a study of what we now understand, in musical terms, of the concepts involved in the words Renaissance, Reformation or Counter-Reformation, and followed by volumes which focus on a single set of topics, for example theory, sources, patronage and secular or religious music. This series of six volumes on Renaissance Music is a major resource for specialist music libraries and academics.
