This carefully orchestrated work can play more than one part: it is both reference book, packed with a number of useful features; and textbook, even including a "Suggested Syllabus for a Fifteen-Week Semester with Three Class Hours per Week..,."With its thoughtful organization, cleary written and carefully researched text, and numerous special features, this will be a welcome addition to any academic or large public library music reference collection."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
