Fully revised and updated, Leo Treitler's seventeen classic essays trace the creation and spread of song (cantus), sacred and secular, through oral tradition and writing, in the European Middle Ages. Each of these seminally influential essays has been revised to take account of recent developments, and is prefaced with a new introduction to highlight the historical issues. The accompanying CD contains performances of much of the music discussed.

"Treitler's writings have been as broadly influential as those of any musicologist of the last twentieth century who has focused on the Middle AgesThis book will surely receive notices from musicologists; but maybe it will also reach a broader audience among other sorts of medievalists, as it deserves."--Speculum
