Being one of the very first widely distributed records on the teaching of counterpoint, this is a classic not to be ignored. It is concise and a simple read, but will take years to study. Every time you read it, you learn something new, see new patterns, recognize new techniques. Personally, I bought a more recent, clearer counterpoint book as well which helps explain this three-hundred year old book a lot. It takes effort to study, but the musical depth granted is worth it.

For the student or enthusiast who enjoys music theory, this text translated from a time when counterpoint was king is very insightful towards that end. Some music theory knowledge is required, but the scope of this text does not venture too far beyond the rules of voice leading. Not an eye-opener, but definitely helpful.
