Music's origins, whether initiated by the imitations of animal cries, the rhythms of speech, or the need to communicate, have always been the subject of debate. Even the most primitive cultures have been capable of creating complex and highly structured music. Music's heritage is also deeply rooted in religion and ritual. The Book Of Music clearly explains those origins and brings us through virtually all phases of the development of music around the world. Dance, singing, how instruments evolved, and musical styles are logically and progressively demonstrated through illustrations, photographs, and a chronological timeline. Sections include glossaries of terms, composers and instruments. The knowledge gained from this fully-illustrated volume will enhance your listening pleasure and create a deeper appreciation of the history and process behind the art of music.… (more)
