"The author is to be commended on the painstaking work evident in this ambitious work. The appendixes are excellent especially the inventory of dance movements.....There is a great deal of valuable and erudite material in this book. 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"
