About the Author

Martha Elliott has been a member of the Performance Faculty at Princeton University since 1985. She has taught courses and workshops in early music performance, and coached baroque opera productions at Princeton and elsewhere. Her performing career has featured a wide variety of repertoire and styles including a specialty in early music.


Taking on the complex and often confusing subject of early music performance and practice, Martha Elliott has written an invaluable resource for singers, teachers, and coaches alike. This book is both a terminal resource and a jumping off place for continued exploration of this vast musical treasury. -- William Burden, voice faculty, Mannes College of Music and The Juilliard School
This is an essential volume for singers, teachers, and even conductors of early music at any level. Packed with information, suggestions, resources, and illustrative examples-and invaluable bonus chapters-it clearly and comprehensively delineates the many musical and practical considerations this enticing repertoire compels us to make. -- Ryan Brandau, artistic director, Amor Artis, Princeton Pro Musica, and Monmouth Civic Chorus
