Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ faded at folds and spine.

This book begins with an interesting comparison between Renaissance and Baroque music, and shows clearly the vital elements in the early Baroque style that gradually superseded lines of development fostered by Renaissance composers. The work is abundantly equipped with notes, bibliography, list of editions and a wealth of music illustration. In its exhaustive and detailed presentation it admirably interprets this significant era and its monumental and lasting art. Illustrated with B&W photographs and musical scores.
