About the Author:

Jeffery Kite-Powell is Professor Emeritus at the Florida State University College of Music. He is translator of Michael Praetorius's Syntagma Musicum III and editor of A Performer's Guide to Renaissance Music, Second Edition (IUP, 2007).

Stewart Carter is Chair of the Department of Music at Wake Forest University, Executive Editor of the Historic Brass Society Journal, and former Editor of Historical Performance: The Journal of Early Music America.

Review:

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)

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)

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)
