After a distinguished career of more than 35 years, Ignace Bossuyt retired as professor at the Musicology Department of the University of Leuven on October 1st 2007. As an internationally recognised leader in the field of later-16th-century music, Bossuyt consolidated the department’s reputation as a centre of excellence in renaissance music studies. Articles in this volume deal with music from the period on which the dedicatee focussed his own research. Subjects discussed include newly discovered music by Philippe de Monte and Heinrich Isaac, humour in the motets of Orlando di Lasso, the beginnings of music history, compositional procedures in renaissance music, and Tinctoris’s art of listening. A wide range of methodological perspectives is offered, including historiography, reception studies, source studies, music analysis, music theory, style studies, and aesthetics of music. The publication is both a Festschrift in which distinguished specialists honour an outstanding colleague, and a Liber Amicorum compiled for a dear friend.

Mark Delaere is Professor and Head of Musicology at KU Leuven. His research covers mainly music from the 20th and 21st centuries, with a special focus on the interaction of analysis, history, theory and aesthetics of music.
Pieter Bergé is Professor of Music Analysis, History and Theory (1750-1900) at the KU Leuven. His main research topics are Arnold Schoenberg, German opera during the Weimar Republic, Formenlehre, instrumental music from 1770-1830, and 'analysis-and-performance'-issues.

The self-effacing title of this Festschrift belies the great wealth of scholarship to which it bears witness. It pays fitting tribute to a scholar whose work on sixteenth-century music - on Adrian Willaert, Alexander Utendal and Orlando di Lasso, through editorial, analytical and historical studies - has been prolific and far-reaching.
The variety of approaches taken in Bossuyt's own work are reflected in the diversity of offerings here.

By this point, the collection has brought us through an extended selection of approaches found in early music studies past and present. Much as in the wide-ranging writings of Bossuyt himself, virtually every reader in the field will find at least some familiar point of contact. Under the book's placid surface- the traditional university press production with an attractive illuminated manuscript image on the dust jacket, the historical bent of the contents list, the plates of sources and scores-lie histories and analyses, but also innovative interpretations and inroads into methodological shifts. The contented early music aficionado will derive pleasure from a rich and colorful collection of writings; the self-reflective historiographer will find challenges.
