One of the most influential figures in the twentieth-century revival of early music, Arnold Dolmetsch was the first to apply scholarly attention to the issue of authentic historical performance. His ground breaking 1915 study remains a landmark of musicology, offering not only a text on performance practices of the baroque but also glimpses of what music meant—both as an art and a science—to musicians of the period. Topics include tempo, rhythm, ornamentation, figured bass realization, wrist positioning and fingering, and musical instruments of the era. This new edition features a rare appendix of musical examples.

"I'd like to say I am extremely pleased with the service your company has provided me. I'll be receiving my new Sonor Force tomorrow and am very excited. This shopping experience has been pleasant and satisfying. The price was killer and the kit will be awesome. Also, sending me the drum heads I wanted free of charge was an unexpected bonus that I will never forget."

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"
