Product Details


A Story of Music is not a mere detailing of composers and dates. Rather, it is an account of the place of music in relation to the history of mankind. Written in narrative style, it begins with man's use of drum beats to drive out evil spirits, progresses through the times when music was for the exclusive pleasure of wealthy patrons and their friends, until today when there is music of any type and taste for all. While this book was written for older children, adults who do not have much background in music will find it entertaining and informative.
