Andrew Eiger, an ambitious American musicologist, is stuck in a small college in the Midwest when fate delivers him an original fifteenth-century manuscript. It s his calling card to the finest academic institutions, but first he has to crack the notational code. At a conference that commemorates the great French medieval composer, Johannes Ockeghem, Andrew must convince Emma Mitchell the dynamic conductor of the renowned early-music group, Beyond Compère to share his vision of the composition s glittering premiere. But who wrote it? The true story is yet to be discovered, hidden in a memoir that describes the treachery of the famous Josquin Desprez. Deftly blending farce with acute knowledge of life as a performer, Donald Greig s impressive first novel is a thrilling behind-the-scenes tale set in the world of classical music. Witty and informative, it skilfully refracts the present day through the prism of the past, weaving themes of memory, ambition, friendship and love.

Review:

‘A fascinating double glimpse into the world of modern singers and medieval music.’ —Terry Jones (Monty Python)



‘A delightful romp through the passions and pretensions of the early-music world.’ —Sarah Dunant, author of ‘The Birth of Venus’ and ‘Sacred Hearts’



‘Funny, sharp and oddly compassionate, full of [Greig’s] experience of the world of early music performance and [his] deep knowledge of music history.’ —Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive, Royal Academy of Arts



‘This is one for lovers of “The Name of the Rose” and “Possession” ...and lovers of early music. Donald Greig’s antihero lives in a thoroughly plausible academic world as he attempts to fit in with the equally plausible singers of the group Beyond Compère. The results are often hilarious as the story hurtles to its unexpected climax.’ —David Fallows, Emeritus Professor of Musicology at the University of Manchester and author of Josquin (2009)



‘An absolute page-turner! Brilliant, compelling, funny, moving and historically insightful’ —Tarik O’Regan, composer



‘Fluently marrying the three worlds of London professional singer, American academia and the life of a 15th century composer, Don Greig has written a modern masterpiece. Everything is in place for a thriller which will make its readers laugh out loud. Every detail is secure, every gesture assured - and the twist at the end perfectly managed.’ —Peter Phillips, Director of The Tallis Scholars
