Our knowledge of medieval music--from the dramatic and melodic riches of the thirteenth century to such highlights of the fifteenth century as the pieces in the Old Hall Manuscript--rests almost wholly on the existence of the manuscripts that have survived. Many illuminated manuscripts similarly contain detailed depictions of musicians with their instruments providing a valuable source of reference for performers today. A lively introduction to all aspects of medieval music for anyone who enjoys listening to works of the period.Nicolas Bell is a curator of music manuscripts in the Music Collections of the British Library.
