Overview

Though Temple's writing is in need of polish, this volume nonetheless is an important addition to the field of medieval music, as it transcribes the music preserved in a late 14th-century manuscript now in the British Library. The music of late medieval Italian music and dance are described, with a consideration of Arabic music as a key influence. Temple relied on secondary sources for the historical background to this analysis, which was her master's thesis toward a degree in musicology from Cleveland State U.
