'a thoroughly praiseworthy achievement.' Brio 'Harley's research represents a significant contribution to the study of the composer's life.' Choir and Organ 'No lover of Byrd's sublime music will want to be without it.' Peter Holman, The Lute, Vol. XXXVII 'the first comprehensive study of the life and works of Byrd since Edmund H. Fellowes's William Byrd, published in 1936...represents a considerable expansion upon the work of Fellowes, especially in biographical matters, reflecting the research undertaken by many scholars, Harley included, during the intervening 60 years.' 'if you want only one book about William Byrd,...Mr Harley's book is undoubtedly the one for you.' Contemporary Review 'The biographical section is a particularly impressive piece of work: Harley revises even the most basic facts about Byrd's life' Annual Byrd Newsletter 'the meticulous detail with which Harley supports has account deserves special commendation' 'a thoroughly praisewothy achievement, not only on the biographical side, but as a guide to the music.' Brio 'large college libraries may want to aquire it as a useful source for information. Paper and binding are of high quality.' Choice 'This is an impressive achievement...John Harley has shed considerable light on a rarely appreciated aspect of the English Reformation' The Catholic Historical Review 'Mr. Harley's archival researches alone guarantee that this book will find its own niche within the Byrd literature.' Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. XXIX, No. 4 'Its painstaking archival research and the author's familiarity with manuscript material across many fields will not only make this the definitive Byrd reference for many years to come, but serves as a model for scholars in all fields of Renaissance historical investigation.' Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. LII '...John Harley has certainly done much to enhance our knowledge of Byrd's otherwise shadowy history.'
