He is a real companion on his reader's journey of discovery... The text (is) unfailingly readable and astute in judgement. JOHN TALBOT, BRITISH MUSIC SOCIETY NEWSLETTER First-class...one of the most important treatises on the subject yet written...(Hold) writes superbly, urbanely and - more important - carefully...Highly recommended. THE SINGER Constantly illuminating. JOHN STEANE, GRAMOPHONE This deeply considered, beautifully produced book...will be the standard work on the subject for the foreseeable future. MUSIC & VISION
