A History of English Church Music. First edition. First edition, 2015. Hardback. x, 454pp. Dust jacket in a protective sleeve. Andrew Gant has written a compelling account of English church music, tracing its history from before the arrival of St Augustine in 597 to the present day. It is a history of the music and of the people who made it, sang and listened to it in their parishes and at home, as well as in the great cathedrals and chapels. It describes the part church music has played in ordinary lives and how it reflects those lives back to us. The author considers why the music remains so popular and why the BBC's "Choral Evensong' became the longest running radio series ever. Book in very good condition. Some extremely minor bumping to lower corners. Slight toning/soiling to text block edges. Internally clean and bright. Dust jacket very good and unclipped. Very light edge wear only.
