Review quote

'On saluera donc le present volume comme il se doit, d'autant que plusieurs pieces son ici publiees pour la premiere fois ... La qualite de cet ouvrage est parfaite; appareil critique tres documente, bonne mise en page, bibliographie abondante, conseils pour l'interpretation. Et la reliure cartonnee, tres elegante et bien solide, ajoute au plaisir.' Magazine Orgue No. 53 'As the leading Greene specialist for many years, Johnstone provides an excellent and thoroughly well documented editorial introduction ... The editorial principles are ...sound and scholarly, and the transcriptions from the sources exhibit a high standard of accuracy ... Johnstone shows a thorough understanding of the style of the period, and the resulting texts, presented with admirable clarity, are always convincingly plausible and musically satisfying. The edition is a major advance on earlier selections of this music, as well as containing several works not previously published. Much of the msuic itself, too, is very fine, and the fugue themes in particular are handled with admirable skill and imagination.' Music and Letters Vol. 80, No. 3, 1999show more
