Item Description...
This volume presents an introduction to the study of music from Homeric times to the Roman emperor Trajan. Chapters include: an exploration of the contexts in which music played a role, including genres of poetry regarded as musical by the ancient Greeks; a discussion of instruments, including the aulos, the kithara and the lyre; an analysis of scales, intervals and tuning, incorporating a discussion on the evidence for scales and the concepts of species and key; an examination of the principal types of rhythm used in the musical sections in various literary genres; an exploration of Greek theories of harmony and acoustics, from the famous Pythagorean discovery and an account of the De Audibilibus, commonly attributed to Aristotle.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent  Feb 21, 2008
This book is great. I was looking for a clear and concise introduction to the world of ancient western music, and this is it. There are other books, thicker and full of technicisms, detailing all the little nuances of modality, tuning, lexicography... Try to read them if you can. This book manages to cover all the topics I was interested in (instruments, scales, notation) and some others in a brilliant way. It is a bit on the expensive side, but totally worth it.
Understanding Music History Better  Jun 11, 2007
This is so far a fascinating book to read. It covers music from ancient times and he uses actual music that was uncovered from those times. What I find very interesting is the connection to the modal/tonal music that we are most familiar with in this day and age. I like the way he connects things in his book! I recommend this to anyone who is interested in history and music alike. I think I shall enjoy this book for years to come!!!
