Willi Apel and Archibald Davidson put together the two-volume "Historical Anthology of Music" with such intelligence, taste, and care that it is still a definitive resource after fifty years in print. This volume begins with some fragments of ancient Oriental and Greek music and then moves to medieval music and that of the Renaissance.

The examples are quite diverse, and while there are samples of the ancient notation, most of the pieces are provided in modern notation for ease of understanding by students. There is a nice balance of instrumental and vocal music, of sacred and secular music, and of various geographical locals and different times over the centuries.

There is commentary on the pieces in the back along with translations of the texts into English. The book has a nice large format and is wonderfully easy to read.

Great! I now personally 'own' this library book! It is a well-known reference book/ music anthology, published in 1949, which I have periodically borrowed from the public library (always Library Use Only at the university Music Library) to do some research on Renaissance choral repertoire. This is the revised edition, which includes many corrections from the first edition. The copy I bought is perfect, practically brand new, with dust cover and no markings, and the used price was incredibly inexpensive [...]- a real bargain! Book shipped and received quickly- no problems.

Guys and Girls,

If you're ever taking a class (summer class), and your teacher tells you "just go on Amazon and buy the damn book", the big hint I can give you is: DON'T DO IT THROUGH SBD. I learnt the hard way.

As you suspected, I went on Amazon and searched for this book. The seller SBD showed up with a pretty good deal. I compaired prices and decided to go with SBD: WRONG!!

What happened to me?? well! I bought the book on June 7, foolishing expecting to recevie my book on the "expected arrival" date of 6/14 that SBD posted, and IT NEVER CAME. Then, I got a confirmation email from them, telling me the arrival date of the book will now be 6/28/10.

I originally went with SBD because I thought they offered a fair price, and I was really aiming for the fast shipping. WRONG AGAIN
!
The story is not over yet. The book came SO late, (close to the end of my summer term) that I was forced to buy ANOTHER book from the university book store. (Great, now my expenses doubled.)
I had to email SBD again to let them know I will be returning the book, and they sent me instructions of how to do it.

I was lucky enough that I bought a confirmation along with my package because until yesterday, they claimed that they have NOT received my book, when CLEARLY, the confirmation provided by USPS says the ACTUAL delivery date and time. (and I'm thinking: wow, they must really want to keep my money and the returned book!)

They don't response to their emails unless you force them to do it. They will NEVER give you your money back unless you have EVIDENCE!! So if you're an unfortunate one, keep all your receipts and dates. Trust me, you'll need it.

Until this day, I have NOT received my due refund.

Thanks SBD.
