bookJames Garratt and John Butt and Laurence Dreyfus Palestrina and the German Romantic Imagination : Interpreting Historicism in Nineteenth-Century Music (Musical Performance and Reception)
Cambridge University Press, 2002; ISBN 0521807379; 332 pages
James Garratt explores the revival of sixteenth-century music in nineteenth-century Germany, focusing on the reception of Palestrina by critics, historians, performers and composers. He demonstrates that the Palestrina revival was just as significant for nineteenth-century culture as parallel movements in the other arts. This study is of relevance to scholars, students and devotees of nineteenth-century music, as well as those with interests in nineteenth-century culture, art, architecture, literature and aesthetics, the history of church music and the early music revival.
