This review is from: Time Will Tell (Kindle Edition)
I was recommended with book by a professional singer who had bought his own copy to support friend. This was a good start - if one musician speaks well of another without professional doubts or jealousy.
I enjoy choral music, history and a detective trail. I found much scholarly illumination in the context of a novel which was gave us two narrative stories. Knowing some singers, the trials, personal tribulations and triumphs of a contemporary choral group as they tour was an engaging plot line. The vine of historical reconstruction and characterising of the renaissance composers gave added strength and interest. What engaged and captivated me more than anything was the detective in the reconstruction of a lost manuscript. I am more familiar with the medieval and renaissance mind, numbers and proportions related to architecture so I found the analysis of the lost work's character great fun. The author made it accessible and I ended the book wishing to know more of the works I merely listen to on CD
The author should now compose!
