Praise for the cloth edition: "Commendable in its scholarship... should prove of interest to linguists, medievalists, and Renaissance academicians, as well as to fastidious performers of early music." -- Choice

"Singing Early Music is a pioneering work of surpassing quality that cannot be too highly recommended." -- Journal of Singing

"Addresses the needs of the performer directly, giving historical pronunciations for a range of languages and] sample texts.... The CD that comes with the book will prove invaluable.... David Klausner's recording is admirably consistent and convincing across the wide range of languages." -- Early Music

Industry Reviews

"... it certainly belongs in every institutional library and among the holdings of all those interested in any way in early music and literature. Singing Early Music is a pioneering work of surpassing quality that can not be too highly recommended." Journal of Singing "Commendable in its scholarship, this sturdily bound book should prove of interest to linguists, medievalists, and Renaissance academicians, as well as to fastidious performers of early music." Choice "This book ... addresses the needs of the performer directly, giving historical pronunciation for a range of languages, sample texts, and just enough explanation of how we know... " Early Music "... required study for any musician venturing seriously into the performance of early Western European vocal music." Notes "I highly recommend this book for singers and teachers of early music eager to add an extra dimension to their singing." European Journal of Early Music
