Promotional Information

A collection of 400 passages on music from early Christian literature.


This is a book to be grateful for, since the extracts are intelligently selected and helpfully commented on, while the new translations are as lucid as may be expected with such opaque writings. The Times Literary Supplement Professor McKinnon s book is a major landmark. Music and Musicians James McKinnon s book is a valuable secondary source, and it deserves to be read by all who have a serious interest in early Christian music and liturgy. Music and Letters
