|Series Title:||Oxford monographs on music.|
The chance survival of a manuscript notebook compiled in the first few decades of the sixteenth century by the musician and teacher John Tucke enables one individual case-study to be examined in some detail. Taking this manuscript as its starting point, the present book traces Tucke's career, in so far as it can be reconstructed from available archival sources, and presents the texts of some of the most intriguing material from his notebook, attempting to relate its often enigmatic contents to the wider context of early Tudor music and its production.
