      Comments Off on Books About Music – Free to a good home!

I’m currently clearing some space in my house ahead of moving across town to East Skipton, and I’ve got lots of stuff related to music that I’ll be giving away. First I’m going through my books, many of which were set texts when I did my BA in Music back in the late 1990’s. But, because they’re mostly about classical music or music theory / analysis, they are mostly still used and relevant texts in the field. Here’s the list:

  • The Romantic Generation, by Charles Rosen
  • The Classical Style, by Charles Rosen
  • Music in the Renaissance, by Howard Brown & Louise Stein
  • Medieval Music, by Richard Hoppin
