Description

Sixteenth Century Essays & Studies, Vol. 21

Ryding surveys the Renaissance efforts to recapture the ancients’ success in marrying words to music. Examples of the relationship between the English musical heritage and that from the humanists are illustrated in word and musical notation. The chapters on Campion and John and Samuel Daniel are particularly helpful since little has been written about them.

Ryding’s book is an excellent example of inter-disciplinary research and an exceptional example of showing the interconnections between music and literature.

—Charles Nauert, Editor, Sixteenth Century Essays and Studies

Erik Ryding has brought much labour and learning to his book in dealing with a complex topic…. English Renaissance scholars will not wish to ignore his account.

—Christopher R. Wilson, Music and Letters

Ryding has fashioned a comparative study with a striking breadth and command of both musical and literary texts, an exemplary critical methodology, and a series of insights based on close readings.

—Daniel Fischlin, Journal of the Lute Society of America
