Good quality textbook

 on October 19, 2012
By Siobhan
The Anthology I received was in fine condition. It’s pretty easy to understand (if you’re a classically trained musician) and it’s well organized. That being said, it’s not a portion of music history that interests me in the least, so it was a bit of a dull read.

The book arrived in very good time and was of the specified quality. It will be very useful for the second half of my music history class.

Although the Norton is a great resource, why did they feel it necessary to include “Dead Elvis”???????!!!!! There are many more composers who should’ve been included, but hey, Dead Elvis, though. WTFH, Norton?!
