Books About Renaissance Sacred Music

Music in the Renaissance
Gustave Reese

W.W. Norton Company
ISBN 0393095304

There is not much in the way of books in the English language. This is the comprehensive text about Renaissance music.

Spanish Cathedral Music in the Golden Age
Robert Stevenson

University of California Press

A great book about Victoria and other Spanish composers of Renaissance Sacred Music, but long out of print

Born For the Muses: The Life and Masses of Jacob Obrecht
Rob. C. Wegman
Clarendon press
ISBN 0198166508

Counterpoint: The Polyphonic Vocal Style of the Sixteenth Century
Knud Jeppesen
Dover Publications
ISBN 048627036X

A wonderful book about the style of music composed by Palestrina. This book is for composers, and musicians serious about knowing the technique used in the composition of this music.
