'This eye-opening collection, long and eagerly awaited, helps clarify why musicians enjoyed such a bad reputation for so long (and in some cases deserved it). Its diverse and impressive scholarship, often amusing and arcane, prompts readers to rehear and rethink a broad range of "early music ", both familiar and unfamiliar, and tempts them perhaps even to perform some of it (in the privacy of their own homes).' - Craig Monson, Washington University in St Louis, USA
"This book should be recognized as a trailblazing contribution to a fascinating field of research." - Tim Shephard, University of Sheffield, Renaissance Quarterly
"In sum, Eroticism in Early Modern Music significantly enriches our understanding of musical eroticism during the early modern era" - Amanda Eubankswinkler, Syracuse University, Music and Letters
"This volume makes a welcome contribution to the study of eroticism and music in the early modern period." - Mariusz Beclawski, Kozminski University, Poland in in Parergon: Journal of the Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, volume 33.1 (2016).
