A musical feast,

This review is from: Time Will Tell (Hardcover)
As a rabid early-music fan, I couldn't believe my luck: a novel about 15th century music which blends facts, informed speculation, and light-hearted invention to tell the story of a lost motet by Johannes Ockeghem, with counterpoint provided by an affectionate account of life in a contemporary touring choral group. A wealth of musicological and historical background is embedded in a suspenseful plot & witty writing. May it lead to a revival of interest in this glorious music, as well as more books from Mr Greig.
