nice selection of tunes

A little pricey, but not surprising considering it’s academic material (not that overpriced school material is acceptable, but it is the norm). The selection of tunes is good and covers quite of a bit of ancient music, with a variety of performances that are all good and carefully chosen. Worth the money, especially for a class – to really understand music you have to hear it.

Good companion piece.

When accompanied with the Norton Anthology of Western Music Book this is a great set of CD’s. Simply follow along while you read for great examples of each era. Clear sounding and over all great sound quality.

These anthologies are breathtakingly expensive, but they are important to any music education because they are thoroughly comprehensive. Rather than provide a history of music, these recordings explain principles and ideas in a concrete way and present examples.

I needed this set for class and I’m so glad that it not only came promptly but it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg to purchase. Thanks!
