ABOUT THE COMPANION WEB SITE; PREFACE; APPENDIX: MODAL CHARACTERISTICS; BIBLIOGRAPHY; INDEX
For almost forty years, 16th-century music - particularly on renaissance flutes - has been one of Anne Smith's central interests. She has spent most of that time at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, which provides an ideal environment for live research on historical performance practice.

No one who performs sixteenth-century music, and no one who cares about what this music sounded like or how they understood it back then, can afford to be without this ... book. * Kenneth Kreitner, Performance Practice Review * an engaging and useful study * Richard Wistreich, Early Music *
