Book Description

First published in 2005. By far the most stimulating and complete introduction to the styles and schools of Western music, this work is certain to remain a classic. Beginning with the music of the early Christian church, the Gregorian chant, the book proceeds through minstrels and troubadours, the Flemish polyphonic schools, the Italian Renaissance, the Viennese school and the Russian school. Music lovers will appreciate the author's sound interpretations and engaging, readable style.
