About the Author

Kristine Forney is Professor of Music at California State University, Long Beach, where she regularly teaches music appreciation and music history to undergraduate students. Her understanding of today’s students and her highly regarded teaching abilities make her the ideal author for this appreciation-level textbook. She is also a respected scholar who has written extensively on music of the Renaissance, and is a contributor to the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians.

Andrew Dell'Antonio is University Distinguished Teaching Professor of Music at the University of Texas at Austin. Winner of the University of Texas Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award, he teaches courses in musical historiography, feminist/queer theory, and cultural studies. Dell'Antonio is a specialist in musical repertories of early modern Europe, and his recent work investigates topics as diverse as postmodern modes of hearing and changing listening practices in the early Italian Baroque.

The late Joseph Machlis was professor of music at Queens College of the City University of New York. Among his many publications are Introduction to Contemporary Music (Norton) and singing translations for many operas.

4.0 out of 5 stars good February 8, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was in good condition, and an easy read. However, if you need it for school, buy it new because you will most likely need the access code that comes with it, and it only works if it is new, and the code is like $45 if you bought it used.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Enjoyment of Music October 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an updated version of a music textbook that has been a standard for decades. I do use this volume in my Music History classes at the University. I find it to be excellent for the beginning music student, and I encourage Music professors to consider this text for their courses.

Made a dumb mistake of buying the used book, now I still have to pay over the price of a new book so that I can use the ebook information.
