Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0486214435, Paperback)

Arnold's well known work is based on the study & coordination or practically every important work on the Thorough Bass, including the books of such authorities as Viadana, Heinichen, Matthewson, CPE Bach, Telemann, & others. The book surveys the historical development of the Thorough Bass concept & its literature, with extensive excerpts & considerable interpretative material. This is followed by a discussion of general topics, such as the character of a figure bass, niceties of accompaniment, and forbidden progressions. There are extensive musical examples on nearly every page.
