Divided into three main sections, the book first of all discusses repertory, styles and techniques--the key areas of traditional music histories; next taking a topographical view of the subject--from Italy, German-speaking lands, and the Iberian Peninsula; and concludes with chapters on such issues as liturgy, vernacular poetry and reception.
