Review quote

"Outstanding features include the number and variety of examples (in style, genre, and performance medium), their organization by topic, the CD, the Model Analyses, the complete pieces, and the analytical guidelines and questions. The new Model Analyses add more depth to the text and enable it to be used in a wider variety of class offerings. As an anthology that can be used for both harmony and form classes (or a combination thereof), this text can't be beat."--Ellon Carpenter, Arizona State University "I have never seen an anthology that comes close to this one for extensiveness, playability, variety, and practicality for theory classes."--Robert Young McMahan, The College of New Jerseyshow more
