Overview

A professional musician as well as a writer, Rubin wrote his dissertation on glees, but wandered off to other interests for many years. Here he returns, partly to introduce the music of the glee and its composers, but also to investigate why England made a musical left turn when the rest of the industrial world was turning right. He writes for musicologists and performers, and for the intellectually curious and music lovers who have no professional excuse for indulging in such an arcane study. He indexes titles separately from subjects. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
