OUR AWIN SCOTTIS USE: MUSIC IN THE SCOTTISH CHURCH UP TO 1603

Isobel Woods Preece

PRE-PUBLICATION PRICE £30 (PLUS P&P) ON ORDERS RECEIVED BEFORE 24
OCTOBER 2000)

This collection of studies, edited by Sally Harper, presents unpublished
material from the book Isobel Woods Preece was planning at the time of her
death. It contains articles published by her and extracts from her
dissertation on the Carvor Choirbook. There are also newly-written
chapters on medieval chant and polyphony by Warwick Edwards and on the
music of the Reformed Church by Gordon Munro.

Both scholarly and accessible, this work will be of importance to all
with an interest in Scotland's Christian musical heritage.

Isobel Woods Preece (1956-1997) was a major pioneer within Scottish music
research. A graduate of the University of Glasgow, she subsequently became
a Rotary International Graduate Fellow at Princeton University, where she
wrote her doctoral dissertation under the supervision of Margaret Bent.
She held the posts of lecturer, and later senior lecturer, in the Music
Department at the University of Newcastle, where she was greatly respected
as a scholar, teacher, administrator, conductor and performer.
