16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The World of William Byrd John Harley builds on his previous work, William Byrd: Gentleman of the Chapel Royal (Ashgate, 1997), in order to place the composer more clearly in his social context. He provides new information about Byrd's youthful musical training, and reveals how in his adult life his music emerged from a series of overlapping family, business and social networks. These networks and Byrd's navigation within and between them are examined, as are the lives of a number of the individuals comprising them

Orlando Gibbons and the Gibbons family of musicians by John Harley ( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625) has long been recognized as holding a leading position in English music of the seventeenth century. In his own time he was known both as an outstanding composer, and a performer who was described as 'the best Finger of that Age' and 'the best hand in england'. It is therefore surprising that John Harley's Orlando Gibbons and the Gibbons Family of Musicians is the first full-length study to deal with his life and music since E. H. Fellowes's short book, originally published in 1923."--BOOK JACKET
