For those not already in the know, I’ve decided to write a book on Medieval and Renaissance music of the Western European traditions, or Early Music as it’s come to be known. On one hand, it’s a way to push me deeper into a subject I already love and respect. On the other, it’s a challenge just to see if I can do it. The target audience is for people who, like myself nearly 30 years ago, have little or no formal musical training and would like some kind of road map to help navigate through this era. Along the way, I’ll be compiling research and writing blogs to help cement my thoughts on a variety of topics from composers to instruments to the music itself. Feedback I get here will help to shape the final book. Thanks in advance to all readers.
