Ideas and styles in the Western musical tradition
In this concise, invitingly written introduction to music history, the author approaches the topic as a study of significant intellectual currents and developments in musical style, rather than as a compendium of names, dates, and compositions. The use of quotations from thinkers, artists, and musicians helps engage students in thinking critically and creatively about ideas and styles of music. Ideas and Styles also allows instructors the flexibility to make use of additional materials important to them. The new second edition is accompanied by a two-volume anthology of scores and recordings, as well as an Online Learning Center with additional student resources.

Not a fan. Appreciate the frequent quotation of primary source stuff, though.
