"e;The Craft of Modal Counterpoint"e; is the companion book to Benjamin's "e;The Craft of Tonal Counterpoint,"e; recently republished in a second edition by Routledge. Modal counterpoint is the style of composition that was employed until the "e;tonal"e; revolution pioneered by Bach; it is the basis for most Early Music. Benjamin, a composer and pedagogue, offers a complete analysis of this important musical style. He begins by covering general aspects of the style, then covers in detail two, three, and four-part counterpoint. The Motet, an important form of vocal composition in this period, is studied separately. The book concludes with a brief anthology of key scores, 15 in all, for the student to study further. Also includes 132 musical examples.
