9780199214778: The Guitar and its Music: From the Renaissance to the Classical Era (Oxford Early Music)
Review:

Not only does [ ( Renaissance Quarterly)

] offer a detailed guide to the sources, it integrates recent work from the fields of organology and iconography, archival and patronage studies, performance practice, and the analogous area of lute music, resulting in a coverage that is impressively inclusive in the best sense of the word. . . . with its detailed discussions of the sources, clear explanations of performance issues, and the extension of the coverage into the eighteenth century, all formed upon a solid musicological base, this book will surely be a cornerstone of future research and performance of early guitar repertories. . . . an important and essential study.

Books on the history of the guitar are not in short supply but this one is one of the very best . . . Tyler's contribution is excellent . . . ( Anthony Pryer, Times Literary Supplement)

will open the eyes of those who think that the instrument is fit only for rock stars, born-again evangelists - and the occasional Prime Minister.

This informative book with contributions from two of the most notable scholars in the field of early plucked instruments fills in a far more complete historical account of the guitar than James Tyler's already impressive 1976 OUP volume, ( The Lute Society of America Quarterly)

. Much new research figures in the detailed accounts of the guitar covering the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries.

In this very important new book, James Tyler and Paul Sparks have managed not only to document the guitar's early history, but also to open a window on the music, survey the various relevant instruments and playing techniques, and set a course for future research. Their work will appeal to a wide range of readers, from historians with little interest in the guitar for its own sake, to performers with little interest in history for its own sake. ( Charles Youmans, Notes, December 2003)

... exquisitely researched tome ... fascinating as a tool for frequent reference and a good read too. ( Classical Guitar)
