This is a ground-breaking publication. Originating in a conference held in Athens in 2015, it brings together papers by nineteen specialists in various aspects of Greek culture, and, in the absence of anything resembling an English-language general history of Greek music, and given the general inaccessibility of publications dealing with these topics outside Greece, will be of fundamental importance to anyone with more than a passing interest in them.
