A History of Music in Western Culture 3/e is based on the premise that the best way to convey the history of Western music is to focus squarely on the music. Organized around a carefully selected repertory of works, this text integrates the requisite names, dates, and concepts around specific compositions. Once familiar with a representative body of music, students can better grasp the evolution of musical style and music's changing uses within the Western tradition. Even more importantly, they will have a sound basis from which to explore other musical works and repertories. This text builds its narrative around the core repertory represented in the Anthology of Scores and the corresponding sets of compact discs.

You can just buy the used version as opposed to buying the new like I did. If you are required to have the cd’s that’s insane because they cost WAY too much money.

great

I’ve actually enjoyed reading this text. Some nice side stories to go along with the times and composers. Granted I like history and I like music… So it’s hard not to like it. I give it a 4 star rating because I hate paying for college textbooks. I always feel ripped off and ashamed afterwards…

Great condition.

the book is in great condition! Doesn’t looks like a used one: no words on it, no scratches, no breaks, no page losing. But lack of a CD that I really needed…. have to borrow one. Thanks for the good book!

Have been using this series or books for quite some time. The series works well together. All the books together are quite expensive. Bought used, arrived quickly, packaged in soft packaging.
