Product Description


"The author is to be commended on the painstaking work evident in this ambitious work.

This book provides an opportunity to know more about these works and their social, political and musical significance." - Mary O'Keeffe, Performing Harpsicordist of Rameau Music; "Dr. Rice is truly to be commended for having achieved a wonderful balance between music-historical research and systematic analysis of musical works in this book. It will not only be of interest to musicians but sure to attract scholars from other disciplines as well." -Dr. Barbara Reul, Luther College University of Regina"
