Product Description

This classic introductory text focuses on the polyphonic vocal style perfected by Palestrina. It mantains a careful balance between theoretical and practical problems, between historical and systematic methodology. Part One offers a superb outline history of contrapuntal theory; the second part of the book contains an extended treatment of 'species' counterpoint in two, three and four parts, as well as counterpoint in more than four parts, and specific discussions of the canon, the motet and the Mass. Filled with musical examples - exercises, solutions and illustrations. Index. 302p.
