From the Back Cover:

The Soul of Cinema is the first film music appreciation textbook ever written. This text explains the various functions of music in film and clearly describes the roles of producers, directors, and practically everyone else in cinema, and shows how they each relate to the composer and the musical score for a given film. The Soul of Cinema traces the evolution of film music from 1895 to the present, covering many of the representative film scores, film composers, and styles and trends along the journey. Some features include:

  • each major composer is highlighted with a biography, a photo, a listing of the individual's recognizable compositional style, and other pertinent information
  • interviews with film composers, music editors, orchestrators, film music agents, studio musicians, music copyists, music contractors, and others within the business
  • an extensive section on women film composers and contractors
  • rare Bernard Herrmann facsimiles of some of his greatest works
