Excerpt from Palestrina His Life and Times

Maitland, to whom my deep gratitude is due for valuable criticisms and suggestions.

For the translation of the Mantuan letters, etc., I have to thank Mr. J. M. Rigg, while Dr. Ludwig von Pastor and the late Dr. Bannister helped me greatly in procuring access to the Vatican and other libraries.

If the result of so many advantages helps any lover of sixteenth century a cappella music to a better understanding of the subject it will not have been in vain.
