    I'm somewhat biased toward this book as it contains much history of my family in Tudor England Holman has researched the early history of the violin in England and the musicians who introduced it including Ambrose da Milano alias Ambrose Lupo and his sons Peter and Joseph It details the establishment of the English consort the forerunner of the modern symphony with many details about the musicians and the lives they led at court


  2. Allen Garvin Allen Garvin says:

    Fantastic monograph on the subject of the viol and violin in Renaissance and early Baroue England drawing extensively on original sources It's often difficult to distinguish from context whether writers meant viol or violin family instruments until very late so there's plenty of gamba interest here I kind of lost interest after the Restoration but apart from Purcell the golden age of English string music was past
