Timothy James McGee, A. G. Rigg, David N. Klausner
Indiana University Press, 1996 - Music - 299 pages

Singing Early Music studies the principal languages of Europe as they were spoken from the twelfth to the seventeenth century: English, Scots, French, Occitan, Spanish, Galician-Portuguese, Italian, German, and Flemish as well as the Latin "dialect" of each area.

Each chapter is written by an expert in the particular language and includes several sample texts, printed in both the original language and in transcription in the International Phonetic Alphabet. All the texts are recorded on the accompanying compact disc. This comprehensive volume and CD will be invaluable for medieval and Renaissance studies as well as for the performance of early music and drama.
