Andrew Eiger, an ambitious American musicologist, is stuck in a small college in the Midwest when fate delivers him an original fifteenth-century manuscript. It’s his calling card to the finest academic institutions, but first he has to crack the notational code and convince Emma Mitchell – the dynamic conductor of the renowned early-music group, Beyond Compère – to share his vision of the composition’s glittering premiere. But who wrote it? The true story is yet to be discovered, hidden in a memoir that describes the treachery of the famous Josquin Desprez.

Deftly blending farce with acute knowledge of life as a performer, Donald Greig’s impressive first novel is a thrilling behind-the-scenes tale set in the world of classical music. Witty and informative, it skilfully refracts the present day through the prism of the past, weaving themes of memory, ambition, friendship and love.

Talk about Time Will Tell


Prince Persie
I hate to give a middling review to a genuine effort, but ultimately, this book lacks the intrigue and interest of an actual novel. The plot concerns an Early Music musicologist working on Ockeghem; in comparison to most academic writing on the subject, this is a gripping thriller, but in comparison to your average novel, this book comes up wanting.

Part of the problem is the minute dissection of each character's every motive, action, and line of dialogue. The author seems to be reaching for Dostoevskian psychological insights, but the characters and situations are too boring to warrant it. Instead, the characters come off as paranoid, and absolutely nothing is left to the reader's imagination concerning their motives.

Much of the book is given over to a fictional 15th century memoir, and despite those passages being some of the more interesting in the book, the voice of the memoirist lacks that "antique" register that would make it sound authentic – in fact, it reads just like the rest of the narration/dialogue.

My final complaint is that much of the writing is given over to unnecessary, mundane details: that a character folded her clothes in preparation for a trip, finding out a restaurant isn't open late, explaining what the children of a tertiary character are up to. I'd say this bogs down the book, but since it's all written in the exact same bland narrative tone, and hardly anything of consequence actually happens in the book, that's not exactly true.

There's no reason that the discovery of an elaborate 15th century motet by Johannes Ockeghem couldn't make for a good book, but this isn't it. Interesting characters, swifter writing, and above all, higher stakes would make this a much more rewarding reading experience.

Donald Grieg's _Time Will Tell_ is an entertaining and illuminating read for lovers of ensembles like the Tallis Scholars, early music buffs, or even for casual readers with a passing knowledge of classical music. Cast in three interwoven sections, focusing on a hapless American scholar who happens upon a score for a long-lost choral masterpiece by Johnannes Ockeghem, a new British a cappella ensemble led by an enterprising female director, and the (fictional) 15th century diary of a (real) contemporary of Ockeghem. In addition to being a good read, _Time Will Tell_ gives insights into early music scholarship, the joys and travails of singing in a professional touring specialist vocal emsemble, and, most importantly, provides a window into the world of 15th century musicians. For me, the most fun was seeing famous Renaissance composers like Ockeghem, Josquin and Compere come to life in the memoir, and the author has a bit of fun with his dastardly portrayal of the peerless Josquin, though, of course, we know little about what these people were really like. Less successful in the plotting is a series of accidents and happenings that lead to the denouement -- one can only suspend one's disbelief for so long before these suspensions (early music pun intended!) become a bit wearying. That said, this novel is eminently worthwhile, and not just for early music specialists. Warmly recommended.

For other people it's heavy, generally slow and full of unnecessary detail, Often included apparently to show off musicological info.

It either needs better characters or more musicology! The Eiger character seemed underdeveloped. Plus some basic factual errors (check the time zone for Columbus Ohio).

Thrilling for an early-music person like me to read a novel that pivots on Johannes Ockeghem!
Anicasalar
It shows an amazing knowledge of Early Music but is not very interesting until the story becomes interrupted
towards the end.

somewhat convoluted plot, uneven characters, but pretty engaging and fun to read for a while. I found the writing style was not able to sustain my interest to the end, but entertaining enough as literary 'snack food'
