From Library Journal:

This lavishly illustrated volume is a spinoff from a five-part series on British television. Its impetus is superficially appealing: the story of musical life in Venice for each of the last five centuries. Unfortunately, apart from the glorious achievements of several individuals--the Gabrielis, Monteverdi, and Vivaldi, for example--there really isn't much to tell, which results in a great deal of "padding." Much of the text avoids musical discussion in favor of celebrating the city itself. The numerous illustrations are often tangential to the matter at hand, and the layout is replete with distracting "factoids" in the margins. Libraries owning nearly any standard music appreciation text may pass.
