Excellent varied selection of music

This second volume contains more tunes and information about those tunes. I like the selection, and I think the text and illustrations help to give context, direction and inspiration to the reader/player. All of the music is in the treble clef, doesn't go up into leger lines and only goes down to middle C (although there is a bass part in La Francoise Nouvelle). The general information about instruments etc is in the first volume.

Good for instrumentalists

This is a good publication which, as the its title suggests, focuses primarily on tunes. It is therefore more useful for instrumentalists rather than singers since, although words are included for some of the songs, for others they are either incomplete or omitted completely. The background information is quite thorough, though the introduction does suggest that a copy of Medieval Book 1 for information about instruments, ornamentation and dance styles. Acquiring Book 1 is certainly something I am considering. The number of tunes in this book alone make it good value for money.
