The Bible of Music History 14 Jan. 2012
By lexiconductor_91 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Memorize this book. Dense but clear presentation of music history from the beginning of time up through the 20th century. It's considered the study guide for entrance exams to graduate schools of music.

Must-have for music students. 6 Jan. 2013
By Katherine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
These anthologies are breathtakingly expensive, but they are important to any music education because they are thoroughly comprehensive. Rather than provide a history of music, these recordings explain principles and ideas in a concrete way and present examples.

Good presentation and content 7 May 2013
By LauGA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
The analysis at the he end of the pieces is helpful and not complicated.for the average music student. It's commonly assigned.
Fantastic resource 21 Dec. 2012
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Chances are if you're using this book, you're in a music history course. This book does an excellent job with all the music presented, and makes sure that everything is laid out in an interesting way. I found myself spending time just flipping through it and listening to the various pieces. Definitely the gold standard.
Excellent Text 25 Dec. 2012
By Marco Zaragoza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This book gave me very precise information regarding the early beginning of chant music and the texts that accompanied the pieces.
