John Taverner

£19.99

Product description

John Taverner His Life and Music by Hugh Benham, 2003, with dust jacket. John Taverner was the leading composer of church music under Henry VIII. His contributions to the mass and votive antiphon are varied, distinguished and sometimes innovative; he has left more important settings for the office than any of his predecessors, and even a little secular music survives. Hugh Benham, editor of Taverner's complete works for Early English Church Music, now provides the first full-length study of the composer for over twenty years. He places the music in context, with the help of biographical information, discussion of Taverner's place in society, and explanation of how each piece was used in the pre-Reformation church services. He investigates the musical language of Taverner's predecessors as background for a fresh examination and appraisal of the music in the course of which he traces similarities with the work of younger composers. The book has been inspected under strong light and graded Very Good using AbeBooks grading guide. The front of the dust jacket has some minor surface scuffing and some light indentations, of which only one can be seen on the reverse, there are a couple patches are slightly foxed/stained (only seen under strong light) and one tiny dark dot in the publisher logo. The edges are slightly scuffed and a little creased in the corners, top right very just starting to fray and slight creases in binding line. The spine some surface scuffing, light indentations and couple small dents, there is one dent which can be seen on the reverse, the top and bottom edges have been slightly scuffed, more so the bottom edge, and the corners are again slightly creased. The back has some more noticeable scuff/indentation marks which have a diamond pattern imprint in several places in the top left half, there are some more areas of indentations and scuffing, some have turned slightly shiny in patches. The top edge has scuffed and creased, not so much the bottom, just a slight dent in the left corner. The pages when closed have a couple light smudges but aren't too noticeable.
