You will NOT have access to the website needed to listen to the examples. I nearly failed a class because this didn't come with the proper study resources included in the physical copy.

Apparently the world’s largest empire of the time contributed nothing to medieval music or renaissance music. Neither Spain, it’s music or it’s impact on Latin American music or Medieval Latin American music are ever mentioned. We don’t need a wall when we have intellectual disparagement of a whole culture and language that spans the globe.

If you need to use this book for a college music class that requires the access code to listen to the music online, you're screwed. This book is way over priced to not even get what you need to complete your college course. Not getting this access code when I waited to receive the book forever has now put me behind in the class. Now I am having to go through the return process and still going to my college campus bookstore and buying this book again to actually get what I need.
This was not noted in the description about the book and was definitely a rip off. DO NOT BUY!

Not only is it overpriced, I didn't get what I expected. The whole point of college students buying this was for the access code and they didnt even specify if it was included or not. Thanks for letting me waste my money.

Excellent textbook to accompany my music appreciation class last semester. The book is structured in an easy-to-follow format that begins by teaching the elements of music, giving the student a good basis of knowledge to learn about the musical periods.

It's a good history on music, concise, but provides a lot of good info. If you're taking MUSI 1306 please get this book instead of the overpriced one, unless your prof specifically asks for that (mine didn't) this will save you 100 dollars seriously and you can find all the music on the cover and back of the book. From there look up the music on Youtube people, this is some old music. They're available online. Save you moolah!

This is not the set for the ninth edition, it is the set for the brief ninth edition. I did not know that I really needed the 9 CD set. I went by the description. My CD's arrived before my book. Also, one of the CD's when I go to play it shows that it is CD 4, but really it is CD 2. The song titles do not match the songs, so I had to go only by what the book showed. Quite frustrating as I bought the new set thinking that would ensure no problems!!
I've seen the unabridged version of this book and it's as big as an encyclopedia. The Brief Edition does well to summarize the important points in music history; though the meat of the book is centered in the classical (Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic, Classical, Opera) and merely touches on the more modern componets like jazz and rock. Still, the book and accompanying CD are excellent for those wanting to get a light but informative immersion in the classic music world and learn a little bit about its most famous composers.
