About the book:

Translated by Professors Marco and Palisca in an exemplary manner, [Part III concerns] the materials and methods of composition . . . for voices. . . . [The] eighty chapters [are] arranged in a logical progression of intricacy, beginning with the materials of counterpoint, intervals, rules of consonance and dissonance, and proceeding finally . . . to a discussion of chromaticisim and its faults. Journal of the American Musicological Society

Zarlinos Le Istitutioni harmoniche, published in 1558, is one of the most influential music treatises of all time. To his contemporaries it revealed the secrets of composition he had learned from Adrian Willaert, who brought to Italy the polyphonic art of the Netherlands. To the modern scholar Zarlinos treatise illumines the compositional technique of the golden age of vocal polyphony. The essence of this art is contained in Part III, The Art of Counterpoint, which is here translated into English for the first time.
