In Stock. A solid grounding in musical techniques of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries is essential to a complete understanding of Baroque music. As scholar Denis Stevens says in his introduction to this work, "Full enjoyment will come only when the soloist learns the gentle art of tasteful embellishment of a melodic line, and when continuo players learn that their role is perhaps the most important in the entire ensemble." Arnold's legendary work is a comprehensive survey of its topic, covering every issue of significance to today's performer. The text is fully amplified with numerous musical examples, authoritative citations, scholarly interpretations and syntheses, and the author's own conclusions. An inexhaustible collection of source material for the musicologist as well as an indispensable companion for conductor, editor, or performer.Unabridged republication of the first edition (1931), originally published by Oxford University Press. Introduction to the Dover edition by Denis Stevens. Second of two volumes.

"An important and long-needed book written by the man best qualified."--The Musical Quarterly. The difficulties of tuning (attaining the perfect scale) and temperament (the necessary mathematical compromises for composition) have challenged musicians from the earliest civilizations onward. This guide surveys these longstanding problems, devoting a chapter to each principal theory and offering a running account of the complete history of tuning and temperament. Its value as a reference is enhanced by a glossary and index. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Michigan State College Press, East Lansing, Michigan, 1953.
