Its more than 200 representative examples are individually complete compositions, each of sufficient length to illustrate clearly a form or style. The authors provide an explanatory commentary with bibliography, English translations of foreign texts, and an index. The Library Journal says of it, "in short, Volume 1 of the music historian's classic dreams…No competitors on the market. Highly recommended."
