This briefer, more accessible edition of our best-selling survey text describes American music as a panorama of distinct yet parallel streams - vernacular, sacred, and classical - that reflect the diverse character of the United States. Comparing and contrasting musical styles across regions and time, Candelaria and Kingman deliver a vision of American music both exuberant and inventive, a music that arises out of the history and musical traditions of the many immigrants to America's shores.
