Elizabeth Eva Leach, Machaut's Music: New Interpretations (Woodbridge: The Boydell press, 2003) in the series Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Music.

Guillaume de Machaut (ca. 1300-1377) was the foremost poet and composer of 14th century France. He was highly successful in his own day, enjoyed the patronage of several members of the French Royal House, and wrote large quantities of narrative and lyric poetry. In addition, he set more that 100 of his own lyrics to music helping to establish the so-called formes fixes of ballade, rondeau, and virelai; his is also the first surviving polyphonic setting of the cycle of the Mass ordinary that is known to be by a single composer. Moreover, his training as a court secretary led him to oversee the copying of his own works so that his complete works survive in several large manuscripts from his lifetime; more musical pieces survive by him than by any other single French composer of this period.
