The ten chapters discuss the setting, sound, and significance of each, allowing the instructor to substitute as many as desired for the case studies in the main text by the same author (ISBN 0-393-97536-3). The works are drawn from all eras, and those chosen for chapters 5-10 fall chronologically into the traditional periods of Western music, medieval through 20th century. Lacks an index. Annotation c.
