First published in 1974, this landmark work quickly established itself as the definitive study of French music from 1581 to 1733, a period that included masters such as Marin Marais, Lully, Couperin, and Rameau. This expanded edition includes a bibliography of more than 1,300 works.

Happily for aficionados of French music of the 17th and 18th centuries, Anthony has revised and expanded his 1974 classic. Incorporating much of the recent voluminous scholarship on this subject, he has added nearly 100 pages of text and 800 new bibliographic entries. The format remains the same; the book is still genre-based, beginning with stage music and then proceeding to religious music, two chapters on instrumental music, and a concluding chapter on vocal chamber music. The musical examples scattered throughout have not increased in number from the earlier edition, which is unfortunate because some of the new material could benefit from illustration. A few sections, such as the ones on solo viol repertory and unmeasured keyboard preludes, seem comparatively skimpy. These quibbles aside, the book is still is excellent encyclopedic source and is essential for all major music collections.?Larry A. Lipkis, Moravian Coll., Bethlehem, Pa.
