The ten-volume "New Oxford History of Music" represents a complete survey of music from the earliest times until 1960. The period covered by this fourth volume in the series was the golden age of church music, with such masters as Palestrina, Lassus, Victoria, and Byrd. But at the same time, more and more importance was assumed by secular vocal music and purely instrumental music, above all by the madrigal in Italy and England, the solo song and opera.
