Music from the Earliest Notations to the Sixteenth Century: The Oxford History of Western Music

Music from the Earliest Notations to the Sixteenth Century: The Oxford History of Western Music - Richard Taruskin Starting on my Taruskin and Lang Challenge... Have read Taruskin's 3rd volume already, but decided to start at the beginning. I have ahead of me close to 5000 pages on the History of Western Music.. This will take me over two years, if I do want to do other reading and have some sort of life... Will read both authors in parallel... Taruskin only starts when Music acquires literacy. Lang started with the "beautiful" and the "good" as understood by the Greeks.
