“This volume is the best yet in English on the subject of the secular art song. . . . It is full of both objective information and personal reactions, and will be read eagerly by all those who love song.” —Catherine K. Miller, Library Journal

This is the story of almost a thousand years of song, from the time of the troubadours to the present day. Dealing exhaustively with the history and development of secular art-song in the Western world, the book is an indispensable guide to the amateur music-lover, the student, and the singer.
