The Oxford Anthology of Western Music, Volume One: The Earliest Notations to the Early Eighteenth Century, accompanies chapters 1-11 of The Oxford History of Western Music, College Edition*, by Richard Taruskin and Christopher H. Gibbs (9780195097627).

From ancient Greek music and Christian plainchant to the keyboard sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti, this comprehensive volume includes a rich assortment of landmark musical scores. These include works found in many surveys as well as important pieces that are rarely anthologized, including Antoine de Fvin's Missa super Ave Maria; Adrian Willaert's Benedicta es; the Overture and Act 3 of Jean-Baptiste Lully's Atys; Dietrich Buxtehude's Durch Adams Fall; and an aria from Jean-Philippe Rameau's Castor et Pollux.

Designed with students in mind, this unique collection includes introductory essays at the beginning of each piece and an index of names and terms.

A corresponding set of recordings* (2 CDs) contains all musical examples from the anthology in high-quality MP3 format (9780199768288).
