Medieval music by John Caldwell ( Book )
13 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Preface: In writing this book I have had in mind the needs of undergraduates and others who require a straightforward account of medieval music, above all in its technical aspects. There is in these pages little biography and almost no sociology, topics on which others are better equipped to write; on the other hand considerable attention is paid to notation, so often the key to musical style. I have regarded the Middle Ages as a phenomenon of the Christian West, with the consequent omission of Byzantine chant (except in passing in connection with the subject of modes), not to mention the music of Islam and 'medieval' oriental music generally. This has excluded the possibility of comparisons between these musical cultures and that of the West; but apart from my own lack of expertise it has to be confessed that this is an area in which subjective opinion counts for much and in which very little can be demonstrated with confidence. -- John Caldwell

Essays on the history of English music in honour of John Caldwell : sources, style, performance, historiography by Emma Hornby ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The major themes of the essays in this collection reflect the work of the distinguished scholar John Caldwell, professor of music at Oxford University and a composer in his own right. There is a strong focus on early music, with contributions considering the medieval carol, sources for seventeenth- and eighteenth-century harpsichord music, and the transmission of fifteenth-century English music to the Continent; but they range right up to the twentieth century, with an examination of music in Oxford. All are concerned in one way or another with themes which recur in Professor Caldwell's scholarship: sources; style; performance; and historiography."--Pub. desc
