Anthony J. Harper's contribution to the history of German song in the seventeenth century is a welcome one for scholars of both German literature and music. Concerned with secular song writing of the middle decades of the century, this book brings together a substantial amount of literature from disparate geographic regions into a well-organized and thoughtful volume. Musically, 1624 and 1660 seem more arbitrary, though Harper points out that between these dates is situated the cultivation of simple strophic secular songs before the development of more complex song-types such as the through-composed aria or the cantata later in the century.

Hinton Thomas shows how the music is subservient to the demands of Rist's simple metrical patterns. Shortly after the publication of Rist's Musa Teutonica in 1634 there appeared a collection by another North German, Zacharias Lund.
