Summary "Few western musical repertories speak more to the imagination than the Requiem mass for the dead. 'The Book of Requiems' presents in-depth essays on the most important works in this tradition, from the origins of the genre up to the present day. Each chapter is devoted to a specific Requiem, and offers both historical information and a detailed work-discussion. Conceived as a multi-volume essay collection by leading experts, 'The Book of Requiems' is an authoritative reference publication intended as a first port of call for musicologists, music theorists, and performers both professional and student. Volume I treats the Requiem's liturgical and chant background, the craft of early Requiem composition, and eight of the earliest composed Requiems, from c. 1450 to c. 1550." -- Provided by publisher
