Book Description

First published in 1998. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.


"This study will stand, when completed, as the major reference work on Gardano's music editions for many years to come and will be the mark against which the work of future bibliographers of Renaissance music printers and publishers will be measured." -- Journal of the American Musicological Society
"The catalog maintains a high level of accuracy... Lewis lists nearly 120 editions, providing for the first time detailed information on the spread of music during a critical stage in the history of Renaissance musical style and dissemination. If this decade . . . is significant for establishing patterns of musicmaking in Italy that would last for many years, it is the virtue of Lewis's book that she presents the necessary evidence, allowing us to see those patterns and guiding us to the surviving printed evidence." -- MLA Notes
