Engaging, clear and informative, this book traces the history of western classical music. Paul Griffiths shows how music has changed through the centuries, and suggests how that change mirrors development in the human notion of time, from the eternity of heaven to the computer's microsecond. A glossary provides the reader with clear definitions of technical terms, and a list of recommended books and recordings is included. An essential read for students, teachers and classical music lovers alike.
