A welcome addition to the literature on music of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. BRIO An important re-evaluation of the motet as a sophisticated and multi-layered cultural phenomenon with a complex history, an art form enjoyed not only as music, but also appreciated in written form as a mark of education and as a status symbol. This book is surely a must-have for any university with a music library, and for all serious scholars of medieval music. THE CONSORT [A] very detailed and welcome scholarly resource on the most important polyphonic genre of the 13th and 14th centuries. --B. L. Eden, Valparaiso University
