Roger Kamien's Music: An Appreciation is the most widely used text for Music Appreciation and Introduction to Music Literature courses. The eighth edition maintains the book's many strengths (clear presentation of musical elements, vivid depiction of music history, carefully chosen music examples, and wonderfully detailed listening outlines) while charging ahead with a major technological enhancement to the already unsurpassed supplements' package. This outstanding addition to the Kamien portfolio of products is the Multimedia Companion 4.5 CD-ROM. It's a tool that makes the study of music easier, more rewarding, and more fun. Best of all, this CD-ROM is packaged FREE with every new text purchased from McGraw-Hill.
