Suitable for all courses in music history. This text provides undergraduates with a conceptual framework for understanding stylistic and social developments in the history of music from classical antiquity to the present. Its narrative is built around a series of carefully chosen musical works contained in the accompanying 2-volume anthology and set of twelve compact discs. This text allows the student to grasp the richness and importance of musical history in two important ways. It combines narrative with primary sources in a lively and engaging manner and it traces key concepts of musical style and the uses of music across time.
