John Caldwell - The Oxford History of English Music. PDF

PDF Volume two of this history of music takes the story of English music from c.1715 to the present day. Apart from discussing the music of the principal composers, it focuses to a certain extent on the work of lesser musicians, and includes developments in light and popular music as well as in serious genres. The first seven chapters consider the main events chronologically, a further chapter deals specifically with folk music and popular music of all periods, and a final chapter covers social issues not otherwise handled in detail. There are over 100 musical examples, illustrating all chapters except the last, and all based on original sources. Volumes one and two together offer a survey of English musical history by a single author. British music outside England is not considered except where it is of direct relevance to the history of music in England.
