World Sound Matters - Music Book
By Jonathan Stock.
The music incorporated in World Sound Matters has been carefully selected and prepared in consultation with music specialists and professionals actively engaged in music education. Two aims have been paramount, readers need analyses of a wide range of musical traditions which are both authoritative and yet remain accessible to the non-specialist; and, the many musicians whose work appears on the sound recording deserve a thorough and sympathetic study which neither cheapens nor dilutes their artistry. The result is a publication which should be of practical use to a wide range of musicians, from composers, from secondary school teachers to their students, from adults interested in knowing more about world music and music students wishing to specialise in this field.
