Reviews

"This is a coherent and carefully-thought-out book (...) The new thoughts presented in these essays contribute to an ongoing discussion that has been gathering momentum for some years (...) Harley's book is very welcome: any choir director planning to perform a work by Tallis should consult it." - Richard Rastall, The Consort Early Music Journal, vol.73, Summer 2017
