Product Description

Review

A compendious new introduction to Byrd's life and music, incorporating the newest research. (Christopher Howse, The Daily Telegraph)

Excellent new study. (Peter Phillips, The Times Literary Supplement)

We know a gratifying amount about William Byrd [...] and Kerry McCarthy splendidly and concisely present it all in this intelligent and affectionate biography. (Diarmaid MacCulloch, London Review of Books)

This volume is an excellent addition to any music reference section ... Recommended. (B.L. Eden, CHOICE)

About the Author

Kerry McCarthy has taught at Duke University since 2003. Her research explores the music of the English Renaissance and its cultural contexts. Her first book, Liturgy and Contemplation in Byrd's Gradualia, was published by Routledge in 2007.

Format: Hardcover
This book is praised in "Sacred Mysteries", a weekly article by Christopher Howse in the Daily Telegraph. In this case, Saturday September 21, 2013, page 33.

He says it gives: a clear narrative of his life as a Catholic in a Protestant-ruled country, a guide to books about Byrd, biographical sketches of his associates, and a list of his works. Some works are analysed in detail.

Howse's articles are generally wise and penetrating.

I can't find the article online.
