This book contains 153 catches including the complete catches of Henry Purcell. It is the definitive collection, essential to any madrigal or early music ensemble. There are catches on all the most popular themes: love, war, sex, politics, wine and ale, tobacco, and some good old seventeenth-century toilet humor. The volume contains a thoughtful historical introduction and a very useful glossary of terms.
