    I wanted to wait to write a review until I was nearly finished reading this book, one that I understand is standard reading for music history courses today. I have taken a long time to get through it. This volume contains a wealth of excellent and fascinating material. I have learned so much from it. Among the many things I learned was how for earlier music we probably will never know exactly how much of it sounded. But the book presents a very readable survey over the many centuries, providing the reader with much interesting information. I am the son of musicians but not a technically trained musician myself. Those with a more technical musical background will get more out of the technical aspects discussed. But there is plenty for those of us non-technical folks to glean from the many chapters.There is a fine discussion of Gregorian Chant. The progression of music for the following centuries is well discussed, augmented with lavish illustrations. The book also references musical excerpts available. I did not seek those out but have no doubt they would be an enormous help for the student.The eras with which I have the greatest familiarity are the Classical (called "Classic" in the book) and Romantic eras. Reading those chapters was my favorite part of the book. I loved reading about my favorite composers and some of my favorite pieces. This was a treat. It left me riveted. The book treats the composers and pieces fairly, even-handedly, and informatively. I learned new things even about those works with which I was the most familiar.As the book reached closer to the current day, it had a much more diverse field to cover. One of the reasons why I purchased the book was to update my collection of books on music history, most of which are decades old. This book was able to do that, filling in some of the gaps in a very helpful way. The book gave a good discussion of the widening gap between art music and pop music and the reasons for it. Admittedly, I skimmed some of the discussion of pop music, given my own preferences.I realize that a survey book must make choices in its coverage of a vast topic. But there are five composers left out that should at least have been mentioned. Perhaps some or all of them are mentioned in earlier editions than the one I have, which is the tenth edition.Three of those five I can understand leaving out, though I think their music merits attention, even if they aren't considered innovators. Those three are Joachim Raff, Joseph Rheinberger, and Engelbert Humperdinck (Humperdinck the German composer, not the later pop singer). These three Romantic composers wrote wonderful music. So what if they didn't break new ground? They covered the ground on which they operated admirably and should at least have been mentioned.The other two composers should also have been at least mentioned. One is Howard Hanson, whose music represents some of the finest American music of the Twentieth Century. I suspect earlier editions of the book did at least mention him.The other composer that absolutely should have been more than just mentioned is Frederick Delius. Frankly, I'm shocked that Delius was left out. Every earlier music history I have seen covers him in at least some detail. Delius wrote some of the finest and most approachable music of the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries. Frankly, when I saw that One Direction and Justin Bieber are mentioned but Frederick Delius was completely left out, I knew I could not give this book five stars. I understand that a contemporary book on music history will give a lot of attention to contemporary pop music. As I said above, a survey cannot cover everything. But the music of Delius, unique and excellent in its own niche, is a composer that a serious student of music history should know.Admittedly, those quibbles are my own. Still, on the whole, this is an excellent volume. It is very understandable that it would be considered a standard text. If the author happens to see my critique and includes coverage of Delius in the next edition, then I'll give the next edition five stars! En lire plus

    Lacks research and knowledge on behalf of the authors. It's Angry. Biased. Evil. I can't believe I paid for this Waste. It's too late to get my money back and I can't possibly continue reading this author's comments. There are so many opinions that are attempted to be passed off as facts. I feel deeply sorry for anyone who does not know the truth and reads this false information. En lire plus

    It’s a bit pricey but definitely worth the investment. I would recommend this book to someone who is going into the music education field. It also comes with a code for a playlist. En lire plus
