As well as being a highly individual composer and a pioneer editor of early music, Philip Heseltine (Peter Warlock) did much else in his short life (1894-1930). He was a prolific journalist and commentator on music and this the second volume in a series which has brought together all his occassional writings.

In this volume Heseltine displays his knowledge and expertise as a pioneer editor in the field of early music. His writings on the subject include essays on:
  • Lutenist song writers
  • Henry Purcell
  • Early chromaticism
  • English Ayres
  • Carlo Gesualdo
  • Tobias Hume
The writings collected here show his investigative and combative mind at its most wide-ranging. His skill with words allows him to be always penetrating and incisive, with occasional touches of humour.
