Though many have written on the musical achievements of the Franco-Flemish school, this book is the first to show how the artists and composers of Bruges worked side by side to shape their acoustic and visual environment and to express their fellow citizens' spiritual needs in art. By combining the methods of modern musicology with those of local historiography, Strohm vividly recreates the music of 14th- and 15th-century Flanders in its socioeconomic context, from the pageants and minstrelsy of the court to popular entertainments and the earliest public concerts.

Reinhard Strohm, Professor of Music History, Yale University.Review:
"A magisterial fusion of music history and local historiography...Beyond its vast erudition, modestly concealed beneath a lively and engaging prose style, the book offers much more: it explodes with ideas, unearths and reexamines questions that seemed to have been laid to rest long ago, and approaches music historiography in a way which one hopes future studies will emulate....Brilliant, innovative, and provocative, Strohm's book is a paradigm of history and criticism at its best and a landmark in the historiography of late medieval music."--Journal of the American Musicological Society
