This landmark collection of over 200 complete musical compositions and movements, ranging in time from the Middle Ages to the present, contains a large and varied body of music for study. In addition to providing ample material for both a full-year course in the analysis of musical forms and a one-semester course in twentieth-century techniques, the book offers first- and second-year music theory classes a wealth of illustrations of chords, voice-leading techniques, and forms—plus some material for figured-bass realization and score reading. Because the book consists primarily of music and takes no theoretical position, it is adaptable to any theoretical approach and to any type of curriculum, including those that combine theory study with music literature and the history of musical style.
