My son and I have just started reading this book and we have already learned alot. It's amazing to learn how important their faith in Christ was to these famous composers whose names we've all heard so many times.

Make sure you check out the list of composers in the contents sample before you purchase this book.
I found the author's style of writing to be heavily laced with 'Catholic-is-best' undertones.
If I was Catholic I'd love this book, I'm not :-)

Great asset to anyone studying classical music! This information will not be presented at secular universities in classes, but is historically accurate and helpful to any christian student.
