4.0 out of 5 stars Music from the inside, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a fluent read and informative. Gardiner is a fine musician but not an historian so the book is most interesting when he's talking about the music from the point of view of an experienced performer; a lot of the background has been cobbled together from other sources. But I've enjoyed reading it. Anyone who spends their life dedicated to and immersed in the greatest music ever written is worth listening to!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shelley Unbound, 8 Jun 2012
I can only assume that someone has taken note of the previous critical reviews and tidied up the e-text, as this now works very well: the poems read as poems with all the correct line-breaks and stanzas, and the prose is correct as well. It's a useful, full edition of Shelley's poetry, not based on the latest scholarship but what can you expect for 96p? There is a comprehensive Index that takes you to all the individual poems though it is requires a bit of lateral thinking to get there: go to Cover and press to the next page; ignore the Table of Contents which takes you to the end of the book for some reason! I'm satisfied.
