Praise for the cloth edition:
"Commendable in its scholarship... should prove of interest to linguists, medievalists, and Renaissance academicians, as well as to fastidious performers of early music." --Choice

"Singing Early Music is a pioneering work of surpassing quality that cannot be too highly recommended." --Journal of Singing

"Addresses the needs of the performer directly, giving historical pronunciations for a range of languages [and] sample texts.... The CD that comes with the book will prove invaluable.... David Klausner's recording is admirably consistent and convincing across the wide range of languages." --Early Music
