The definitive study of one of the more controversial figures in early music. Not only was he a composer who threw away the strict rules of the late Renaissance, but he famously killed his wife and her lover. This book looks at the links between his character and music, Renaissance 'imitation', and Baroque rhetorical ideas in his music.
