As an introduction to Composing I found this book to be my go-to guide, and I've been keeping at it for well over a year and a half now. I'm on 4 Part counterpoint finally and one thing I would say is to do extra research on each rule stated. Many of the Rules have since changed and can be challenged. For example Battuta's, considering 4ths as Dissonant, and only being able to use crotchets on the 2nd and 4th beats.

The book is intended as a fundamental introduction and should be considered that way. once following the rules strictly it is up to you to decide which rules you are going to stick by and which ones you are going to break.

It's a classic. There's really little to fault it - you get what you're probably expecting from this.

This book is a bit dry and hardgoing, however I am persevering with it. A good book to read if you need to understand Counterpoint.
