Spring, M (2001) The lute in Britain: a history of the lute and its music. Oxford Early Music Series . Oxford University Press, Oxford. ISBN 0-19-816620-6
This book was the culmination of a ten-year project to write a history of the lute and its music from its appearance in Europe to its demise in the eighteenth-century but centred on Britain. While the history of the instrument and its music in England and Scotland are the main thrust, there are two chapters devoted to developments on the continent and the international dimension is never lost sight of. The book is the first and only book to attempt a complete history of the lute and its music concentrating on Britain. It won the Bessarabov prize for best book on instruments 2001-2, awarded by the American Musical Instrument Society, and was extensively reviewed in all the major musicological journals that relate to instruments or early music.
