This book was bought as a gift for my Grandson who is studying music. This was recommended to him by his teachers and it is a beautiful very thick book which would be superb for anyone really studying the subject. Not cheap, but a reference book to keep for years.

Wrong item was posted to me initially. This resource could be useful however some of the elements of this are missing making it not as good as I had hoped.

David Bowman has done us all a service by putting this book together. Really a wonderful resource for students and practitioners alike. The ability to see and hear examples of the things that he's writing about is an excellent idea. I wish this were available on the iPad as well.

I had this few a fair few years, and it is really good. Opens up all the doorways to music analysis. I think it is analogous to a medical dictionary for a medical student. Every music student should have this as the cd's bring the music examples alive, and it is very precise for such a compact set of books. Also the chapters at the back of the dictionary organise musical topics in a textbook fashion and cross reference to entries in the dictionary (and vica versa) and of course the notated examples in the second book. You get two books and a set of three CDs with this package - one book is the dictionary and musical topics, and the other is the music examples correlating to tracks on the CDs from ancient times to twentieth century. Download these to your iPad/phone and you're away! I've spent time researching one small topic only to be drawn in to others, it is that easy to learn new musical terms and technicalities. The best way to consolidate new musical knowledge in my opinion, I don't know why every music theory book doesn't come with audio tracks!
