Capturing Music: The Story of Notation – Thomas Forrest Kelly

Thoughts: I got Capturing Music for Christmas from a relative in 2016 or 2017, and evidently I thought highly enough of the book to re-read and take notes on it in 2018 once I had started taking notes on other books. It’s a beautiful book, filled with photos of the manuscripts it discusses, and I remember listening to the accompanying CD multiple times.

(The notes below are not a summary of the book, but rather raw notes - whatever I thought, at the time, might be worth remembering.)
