Medieval Canticles

Cambridge University Press, one of the oldest and most prestigious academic presses in the world, reprints from time to time older and classical works. One such recent reprint will be of interest to students of comparative liturgics: James Mearns, The Canticles of the Christian Church: Eastern and Western, in Early and Medieval Times (Cambridge University Press, 2012), 122pp.

About this book, the publisher tells us:
First published in 1914, this book provides information on the Canticles of the Eastern and Western Church in early and medieval times. The text is divided into two broad sections: the first covers Greek and Eastern Canticles; the second covers Latin and Western Canticles. Additional material includes illustrative plates and an index of manuscripts. This is a highly informative book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in religious music and the history of Christianity.
