Frank Dobbins (1943-2012; D. Phil. Oxon.) was a world-leading authority on the French Chanson during the Renaissance. The studies offered to him all explore a variety of topics on secular and sacred, vocal and instrumental music from Renaissance to XXth century, with major discoveries which will make the book a reference.

This volume presents 34 studies (750p) in English, French, and Italian, assembled as a tribute by friends and former students from around the world to the late Frank Dobbins (1943-2012), distinguished scholar of the French chanson in early modern Europe. The book is built around studies of music in the Renaissance and Baroque periods (which form the core of the book), together with contributions about music composed between the second half of the eighteenth  century and the twentieth centuries; these reflect both the wide-ranging variety of Frank’s interests, and the range of his friendships. Secular, sacred, vocal, and instrumental music are all treated, while individual essays focus upon codicology, music printing and editing, music analysis, music theory, text-setting, biography, music and literature, music and theology, and both the  reception and sociology of music. They include major discoveries about the diffusion of Jacques Moderne’s choirbooks, Josquin’s music, and musical and archival sources, while a number cast new light on different repertories.
