81 Lockwood, Lewis Music in Renaissance Ferrara 1400-1505. The Creation of a Musical Centre in the Fifteenth Century
Oxford University Press 2009 019537827X / 9780195378276 Paperback New 
393pp, illustrations. Ferrara's ruling dynasty brought some of the 15th century's most important composers - such as Dufay, Obrecht and Josquin Desprez - to the Italian city-state. Based on extensive archival research, Music in Renaissance Ferrara analyses changing tastes and initiative on the part of the successive Este rulers. The book was first published in 1985; this paperback edition features a new preface reflecting on its significant contribution to our knowledge of music in the Italian Renaissance.
