Review:

"This welcome new edition is bigger, better, and more up to date in both discussion and resources cited. It helps the seventeenth century to emerge?deservedly?as almost a separate era within the Baroque, and the chapters by so many outstanding scholar-performers make it altogether indispensible!" ?Ross W. Duffin, Fynette H. Kulas Professor of Music, Case Western Reserve University



"This new edition…is an invaluable resource for both amateur and professional performers as well as scholars and anyone else interested in the fascinating world of seventeenth-century music. Stewart Carter’s original volume…has been significantly enhanced by Jeffery Kite-Powell.?Jeffrey Kurtzman, Professor of Music, Washington University in St. Louis" ?Jeffrey Kurtzman, Professor of Music, Washington University in St. Louis



"[A] welcome update to a highly valuable resource for the study of performance practice, and should be a staple for any collection supporting a curriculum of music history and/or historically informed approaches to performing music of the seventeenth century." ?Music Reference Services Quarterly



"Full of interest, this performer's guide sometimes seems aimed at the listener and musical historian as much as the performer." ?Classical Music



"There's a vast amount of information here, and considerable wisdom. Those exploring 17th-century music should buy a copy." ?Early Music Review



"A Performer's Guide to Seventeenth-Century Music is an invaluable resource for both students and professional musicians: it brings musicians up to date on musical research for the period; it helps performers to see the seventeenth-century as (almost) a separate era within the Baroque." ?Mu Phi Epsilon



"This volume fills a very real need, and fills it beautifully….A range of eminent scholars and practitioners introduce us to the music [of the seventeenth century], its instruments, and its performance, and bring us up to date on the latest in research and scholarship. It is a book for all serious musicians." ?Thomas Forrest Kelly, Morton B. Knafel Professor of Music, Harvard University
