Cambridge studies in music

In the years following the Act of Uniformity in 1549, musicians seemed to thrive on the challenge of the New Prayer Book, and the successive reigns of Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I bought a rich and varied repertory of vernacular church music.

Peter Le Huray traces these developments in great detail, drawing on many contemporary sources to illuminate the music and its social and religious background.
