Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Outstanding collection of musical examples — chants, motets, chansons, madrigals, more — illustrating the general course of musical style from the early Middle Ages to the mid-18th century. Works by Lassus, Josquin des Prez, Schutz, Handel, Bach, many others. Notes identify place of composition in history of music and suggest useful methods of analysis.
