    I use this with my students as a prep to Bach's Two-part Inventions. I have yet to have a student who doesn't like it!

    This is one of my all-time favorite books -- if you're familiar with various forms of Baroque music (Bach's Inventions, dance movements, etc.) you will find yourself laughing all the way through this book and recommending it to others. I often use Palmer's arrangement of "The Ash...

    Grove" in performance settings, reserving "House of the Rising Sun" and others for days when I need a smile. My students also enjoy these settings. This book is a "must" for Baroque afficionados!
