Of an iconic status in the historiography of British Music, The Mulliner Book is published in a completely new edition in the 60th anniversary year of Musica Britannica. A major source of 16th-century keyboard music, it is also a compilation of music for cittern and gittern, plus a short vocal piece by Mulliner himself, available for the first time complete in one volume with a detailed commentary. The collection is also of importance for the light it sheds on musical tastes and attitudes at a time when the Reformation and its consequences were becoming embedded in the national psyche.
