Music in Western Europe, 1580–1750
John Walter Hill’s highly anticipated text presents a broad survey of the music of Western Europe from 1580 to 1750.
This essential addition to the Norton Introduction to Music History series provides a comprehensive introduction to the music of the Baroque, incorporating discussions of culture, religion, and political history with in-depth analysis of musical compositions. The narrative is complemented by a wide range of music in both the text and the accompanying Anthology of Baroque Music; the works included reflect the innovations and great stylistic diversity of music during this dynamic period.
