Synopses & Reviews
The core of the text, the music on this collection illustrates the breadth and depth of American music with more recordings than any other text on American music. The apt and exuberant selections-particularly in all the folk, sacred, and early popular styles-not only define important moments in the musical history of the United States, but, as with previous editions, destine the CD set for the student's permanent home library.
